On October 7th, The National Gallery of London opened its latest exhibition which is dedicated to portraits of the great engraver and painter Francisco Goya, considered the most important Spanish artist of the Enlightenment era. Active between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Goya is also famous for his scenes inspired by the dreams and the supernatural world, all of surprising modernity. This historical exposition leads patrons to Trafalgar Square through about 70 of the best portraits by Goya from public and private collections around the world; some being shown to the public for the first time. The curator of the exhibition, Dr. Xavier Bray, underscores that, “The purpose of this exhibit is to re-evaluate Goya as one of the greatest portraitists of all time.” This is a unique opportunity for all art enthusiasts and for those who will visit London during the exhibition period, which will run until January 10, 2016.
This important opening event was enlivened by the high quality of Follador Prosecco, which has been for some years the official supplier of the National Gallery; a presence throughly Italian, demonstrating that the excellence of our tradition are up to the international scene.
A thought shared by Cristina Follador says: “Our participation in this important event confirms our ability to represent the quality of the territory of Prosecco Superiore in the most prestigious circles. Being close to an art event of such importance is part of the vocation and style that Follador intends to express.”
Natasha Halford, Head of Events at The National Gallery says: “Follador have once again been generous in providing prosecco for the opening events for The National Gallery’s new exhibition Goya: The Portraits. The exhibition events were held in the Wohl Room, which contains many Venetian paintings and offers a perfect location to enjoy Follador prosecco.”
