BRAFA ON LINE: art on web
federico chiale, 20-11-2020
Due to the pandemic caused by Covid-19, Brafa Art Fair has decided to organize the Brussels art fair for the first year online. Many galleries have joined this beautiful and innovative initiative coordinated by the fair. In the online section it will be possible to visit the fair digitally through photos and videos of the exhibitions of the participating galleries. Each gallery will present their best works, all carefully viewed by the fair's strict vetting. Our gallery will present a preview of some sculptures of the highest level: a Spanish painted wooden crucifix from the first half of the 15th century (1410-40), perfectly preserved and intact. The crucifix masterfully executed by a Spanish master, is placed in the context of the late Spanish Middle Ages, where the sculptures were already represented with a more attractive and less suffering face. The other work presented is a Madonna and Child, French in white marble, from the second half of the 14th century (1360-80). This sculpture is part of those groups of Madonnas made in the ile de France region during the first and second half of the fourteenth century. The smiling expression of the faces, and the drapery of the Virgin, are unmistakable features of the French sculptures of this period. The sculpture, although not of considerable size (45 cm), was certainly carried out by an important workshop of sculptors given the very high quality of execution. All these works and many others will be viewable online during the fair which will take place from 27 to 31 January 2021.
