Description: Francesco Capella, Venetian, direct pupil of Gian Battista Piazzetta, had in 1749 his first commission in the Bergamo area, and it is in this province that he had the success not had in his homeland, becoming in the following twenty years the painter most requested especially for sacred commissions. The paintings presented in this edition of Brera never seen are the models for two of the five large altarpieces that the artist executed by 1779 for the sanctuary of Desenzano al Serio, the Annunciation and the Flight into Egypt. Noteworthy is the rare acquisition of works belonging to the genre of "models" that were presented to the client for the approval of a decorative project. In the catalogue-dossier Amalia Pacia analyzes the cultural components between Piazzetta, Tiepolo and Sebastiano Ricci combined in an original way in the paintings of Desenzano and in the related models, outlining in full, through the simple exhibition of these paintings, the career of Francesco Capella in Bergamo, traditionally linked to Venice.
