CHAHAN X COLNAGHI

 

Venetian art and lifestyle experience

May 9th – November 24th 2019

 

Chahan & Colnaghi open the doors of the San Gregorio Abbey in Venice, and will welcome you by appointment (gallery@chahan.com) up to the 24th November 2019, for this unique experience.

Get ready to discover the four first rooms of this amazing place!

THE COURTYARD

 

The Abbey is built around a magnificent courtyard surrounded by a gallery of columns serving the spaces of the ground floor, and giving direct access to the Grand Canal.

The courtyard has been designed in the spirit of a Tuscan garden and presents an exceptional series of sculptural panels by Harry Bertoïa framing a Sculpture of Adonis by Gabriel Grupello.

THE ENTRANCE VESTIBULE

 

Under the porch, an impressive 1st century labrum faces, on the one hand, a sculptural pewter and brass panel by Pierre Sabatier, and on the other hand, a Sylphion ceramic screen by Peter Lane.

Surrounding the door overlooking the Grand Canal, a pair of custom made bronze vessels by Marie Khouri harmoniously match the colours of the vestibule, and punctuate the series of rooms on the ground floor.

THE MAIN HALL ROOM

 

The vestibule gives on the one hand onto the enfilade of dining rooms and on the other hand to the stairwell which leads to the first floor.

The first dining room is built around an exceptional pair of statues in alabaster and black marble representing Flora and Camillus, under the eyes of The Viscount and Viscountess of Headfort, painted by Pompeo Batoni.

The sculptural wall by Pierre Sabatier, the brutalist table by Paul Evans and the sculpted bench by Harumi Klossowska de Rola bring a more contemporary touch.

THE DINING ROOM

 

The second dining room, lit by a majestic chandelier by Nathalie Ziegler-Pasqua, is adorned with a 16th century Flemish tapestry, and paintings by masters such as Palma Giovane and Bernardo Canal.
