CARLO DOLCI (1616-1686)
Alessandro Grassi




The exhibition Carlo Dolci (1616-1686) at the Galleria Palatina in Florence shows a wide range of paintings by one of the main Tuscan artists of the seventeenth century. Dolci’s career is analyzed in relation to his early masters and to the Florentine context. Some critical problems are faced in the catalogue, such as the nature of Dolci’s particular realism, his drawings, his religious themes and the dating of some paintings reconsidered through archival findings.
