Art for Exhibition
“Pictography offers a very important service to Art, since it allows to bring together in one room artworks scattered all over the world, so that academics could study them all at once”.
Vittorio Sgarbi, talking about the works created
for “ I Camerini del Principe “ in Ferrara
Art for Exhibition
Imagine you could see a life-long collection from an Artist reunited in just one place…
Art for Exhibitions: An important chapter in the history of Bottega Tifernate , which, through the different Exhibitions in different years, has won important recognitions and has shown the important evolution of the Pictographic technique. We would like to remember for example the International Exhibition in Monte-Carlo in 1998 , where we won the International critique prize with a reproduction of Salvator Dalì, or the exhibition in 2012 in Perugia inside the “Rocca Paulina”; “Arte allo Specchio”. A collection of Pictographies on “calce” of the most important Renaissance artists of Umbria. The Exhibition included few days where our artists where replicating the real work in a Renaissance workshop, dressed in period costumes and showing the work cycle of a fresco . In two months we had more than 30.000 visitors. Art in Italy generates a lot of interest. We also like to recall the great Exposition of 2009 at the Seoul Arts Center in the best known Museum in Korea, where we had recreated 51 frescos of the Italian Renaissance with a total of 150.000 visits. It was one of the most important events for the museum, and the Exhibition Catalogue, made in Citta’ di Castello, is still used by the Korean schools to teach about the Italian Renaissance.
The strength of Pictography
To reunite entire Collections
Imagine that you could build a Museum with all the works of Caravaggio in the city of Caravaggio, or that you could recreate all the works of Perugino, that are scattered around the world, and put them back in their native territory, Umbria. All of this can be done with the use of the latest technology. With Pictography the result is a unique experience that cannot compare with others. A collection created by Pictography’s technology, gives an exceptional experience of total immersion: as once mentioned by the Director of the Museum of Antwerp. He came to check about the re-making of a painting inside the museum directed by him which was intended to go to the Ducal Palace of Vilnius: “the effect that ones get in front of a re-production of Bottega Tifernate is the same as if you were in front of the original painting, you would so to think that the masterpiece has been stolen from the Museum". There are many good workshops of this kind, but they all lack of a certain “quid” to create the real effect, and people who can make an excellent work often need too much time. Or they can create a very good replica but they do never use their hands. Our work goes a step further with a big emphasis onto technology, but we do not consider it for its own sake: for us, everything has to serve the man’s work. We are conscious that this is a good thing to leave behind us. A concrete example of our achievements, can be seen at the Museum of Leonardo Da Vinci, opened to the public in October 2016, and located in Rome, via della Conciliazione 13. It is the perfect prototype of how we intend to reunite an Art Collection. It counts 23 works at original size of the great Renaissance Artist. 22 wood tables and one fresco, created in size 1:1 with natural pigment colours. layer over layer, following the criteria used by Leonardo on the original paintings. Natural clays, old wood from 1500/1600, preparation with Bologna’s gesso and the glue from rabbit. These are the ingredients that we have used to realize all our works. Every painting has been studied to its smallest detail and compared with the original one on the spot to avoid any minimal chromatic difference; the result is before everybody‘s eyes, it is a series of works that help people better understand the Artist. The viewer can admire, in just one place, different paintings otherwise placed around the world, either in public Museums or in private Collections.
