LA Galerie Canesso
Maurizio Canesso has been immersed in the international art market for forty years. He opened his first gallery in Paris in 1994, and specializes in Italian Renaissance and Baroque paintings, and in foreign artists who were active in whole or in part in Italy.
From the very start, his quest for excellence has been guided by the discovery, re-evaluation, and promotion of masterpieces. Entirely committed to his clients, Maurizio Canesso has the expertise and exacting savoir-faire which have enabled him to create flourishing relationships and gain the trust of private collectors and curators in major French and foreign museums (including the Musée du Louvre and the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne). The gallery’s paintings are also much in demand for loans to international museum exhibitions.
Research published in the gallery’s scholarly catalogues, during prominent art fairs (TEFAF, Biennale des Antiquaires) or significant annual exhibitions in Paris – sometimes in collaboration with prestigious Italian museums – has helped to establish the solid reputation of the Galerie Canesso over the years.
2021 saw the opening of new premises in Milan close to the Brera Gallery, in the former greenhouse of the garden of Casa Valerio, one of the historic buildings of via Borgonuovo. Collectors and art lovers now have a new chance to see Maurizio Canesso’s latest acquisitions in the fields of both painting and sculpture.
