Giacomo Ceruti at Getty Center

Date: Jul 18

In a group of remarkably haunting paintings by Italian 18th-century artist Giacomo Ceruti on view at the Getty Center, from July 18 – October 29, beggars, vagrants, and impoverished workers are portrayed in mesmerizing realism, emanating a sense of dignity and emotional depth. This fall, the Italian Cultural Institute will host a lecture by the exhibition curator, Davide Gasparotto, who will discuss how, at a time when severe inequalities continue to mark even the wealthiest societies, Ceruti’s work testifies to the enduring power of art to reflect our shared humanity.
