Right from the start Paolo’s new gallery distinguished itself for the expertise and attention devoted to painting from the period between the late eighteenth century to the first half of the twentieth century, with a particular regard for Vedutismo.
Tha gallery has also opened its spaces to exhibitions by contemporary artists and, over the years, it has developed a particular interest in little-known sector of antique photographs of the nineteenth century.
Since its first publication in 1998 of a catalogue devoted to landscape views of the Grand Tour, the gallery has annually published a volume devoted, each time, to a different aspect of the subject. Among these we recall here the catalogues about the Roman Carnival and the Golden Age of Danish Artists in Rome in the Nineteenth Century. The latter publication led the Municipality of Rome to charge Paolo Antonacci with curating the exhibition of Danish artists present in nineteenth century Rome which was organized for the visit of queen Margrethe of Denmark.
