Manchester Art Gallery prepares to present a series of new paintings by Manchester-based artist Louise Giovanelli, which will be shown alongside rarely-seen early Renaissance panel paintings from the gallery’s collections and the National Gallery in London, as well as a selection of contemporary works by Victor Man and Mark Manders from the David Roberts Art Foundation and Tate.
The Crucifixion by the school of Buoninsegna di Duccio from the 14th century has provided the starting point for Giovanelli’s latest works, for which she embarked on a significant research project to visit early panel paintings and frescoes in Europe and the US.
