Trend­ing . . . The new way to work baroque

The Irish Times - Thursday - Property - - Interiors -

The re­cently opened San­guine-Luc Tuy­mans on Baroque at the Fon­dazione Prada in Mi­lan is a new way of look­ing at the ex­trav­a­gant style of art and ar­chi­tec­ture that was in vogue from the 17th-18th cen­turies. The artist’s ma­jor cu­ra­to­rial project places sig­nif­i­cant pieces by Old Mas­ters cheek by jowel with con­tem­po­rary works to great ef­fect. It in­cludes Carla Arocha and Stéphane Schrae­nen’s Tabac 2007; Ja­cob Jor­daens’s Stud­ies of the Head of Abra­ham Grapheus, 1620; and Giuseppe Ga­bel­lone’s Pro­tect Joseph, 2012.
