Herbert Horne collector of drawings
Saturday 10 June, 10.30 a.m.
Author’s studies: Raphael, Vasari and Tiepolo.
The Horne Foundation preserves a collection of drawings consisting of more than 800 sheets, acquired by Herbert P. Horne (London 1864 – Florence 1916) during his lifetime and brought together, along with all his art collections, in the bequest established in favour of the Italian State that gave rise to the Museum named after him.
For conservation reasons, this is necessarily a ‘hidden treasure’, which the Foundation has endeavoured to enhance over the years by promoting specialised studies, arranging loans and curating temporary exhibitions.
Among the initiatives promoted to celebrate the recent reopening of the Museum – which has undergone major renovation work – are three special appointments that include a short introductory visit to the permanent collections and the exclusive exhibition of some drawings from the collection, each time chosen according to a different theme and illustrated to the participants. The last appointment is dedicated to author studies.
