The Angel’s game. Giambono and Paradise reconquered
Written by Mariachiara Marzari   
d_db85f7ca43.jpgNot an exhibition: a cameo. Il paradiso riconquistato. Trame d’oro e colore nella pittura di Michele Giambono is an occasion to savour at once the essence of a time and of an artist. Nine of the thirteen pieces are, in fact, a small monograph of this peculiar artist. Giambono is a sensitive, refined painter, a protagonist of late Gothic art.

 

Influenced by Central Italian artists, Giambono has a Venetian style of his own, we may appreciate it on the way he renders cloths and golden items, an homage to Byzantine tradition. All in all, a very personal style, a Gothic maniera. The exhibition revolves around the Paradise Altarpiece, recently restored, that was commissioned to Giambono in 1447 by Giovanni Francesco Dotti for St. Agnes Church in Venice, to be modelled after the pieces realized but two years earlier by Antonio Vivarini and Giovanni d’Alemagna for the St. Pantaleon Church, also present at the exhibition. The restoration of the Paradise, which started in 2010 and lasted four years, raised interesting questions on the identity of who, in fact, took part in painting the altarpiece. Other than Giambono himself, it became clear that other artists of his bottega collaborated with the maestro.
