The Musée d'Orsay has acquired two paintings by Giulio Aristide Sartorio

We are proud to announce the recent acquisition by the Musée d'Orsay of our two important paintings by Giulio Aristide Sartorio, 1906

These two panels mark our sensational rediscovery of parts of a large decorative frieze executed by Giulio Aristide Sartorio for the Esposizione Internazionale del Sempione in 1906. To celebrate the great modern feat of the Sempione Tunnel, the frieze, painted in oil on canvas en grisaille, illustrated "Italy's driving energy in history, ferrying the classical ideal into the modern”.
