'Dreamsongs' explores the interpretation of dreams throughout art history with the display of pieces from antiquity to the present day, including works by Henry Fuseli, John Anster Fitzgerald, Max Ernst, Odilon Redon, Peter Blake and Salvador Dali. The exhibition is a timely opportunity for us to escape the surreal present and explore the furthest reaches of the dream world, of fantasy and of the imagination. Highlights will be available to view via the Frieze digital viewing room, and we are delighted to be able to show the exhibition in full at Colnaghi’s London gallery at 26 Bury Street. We look forward to welcoming you. To ensure your safe visit, please be in touch with us to book ahead or book an appointment.
These paintings, drawings and sculptures, which date from the 15th – 20th centuries, each constitute a different representation of the dream by a variety of masters, including Albrecht Dürer, Henry Fuseli and John Anster Fitzgerald. The works will also be on view in our St James's gallery, which reopens on December 3rd. We hope you will enjoy visiting us, and look forward to welcoming you back in person soon.
The practise of cutting precious stones, valued highly since the time of the ancient Egyptians, was developed in the Roman Empire and later flourished in the Renaissance as the pietra dura technique; an incredibly complex arrangement of finely cut stones, inserted in a ground of white marble. This table stands out as a true rarity because so few of these 16th century pieces survive today, and all are in prestigious public institutions.
Colnaghi will be the only exhibitor to offer works from antiquity to the present day. Our presentation includes unique and rare objects from the Ancient World, the finest Old Masters as well as Modern masterpieces. This interactive digital edition brings together galleries and artists from across the globe.
