MONOGRAPHIC COURSE

Fede Galizia and her times

Documented in Milan since at least 1587, Fede Galizia lives mainly in the Lombard city and dies, ignoring where, after 21 June 1630. The transfer - from Trento to Milan - of the Galizia family, of Cremonese origins, must have taken place on the basis of the multifaceted father, Nunzio, also an artist, engaged in the world of miniature, costumes, accessories, but also in that of cartography. Faith - a programmatic name for the Europe of the Counter-Reformation - obtained an extraordinary success among the clients of the time, so much so that her works reached, before 1593, through the mediation of Giuseppe Arcimboldi, the imperial court of Rudolph II of Habsburg .
Twentieth-century studies, especially Italian but not only, have given particular emphasis to the activity of Faith as the author of still lifes, at the origins of this fortunate genre. It seems that the time has come to rethink the artist's profile as a whole, which she created mainly portraits but also altarpieces, intended for locations that are anything but local.
The course aims to answer the question: why was Fede Galizia so popular? What are the reasons for her success in the era in which she lived? How much did her being her woman have weighed in this? How does the appreciation of a work of art change between the long twilight of the Renaissance and today's world?
