Archbishop Goold’s Passion for late Baroque Painting
6 August at 11:00 AM - 12:00 PMFree
In 1853 Archbishop Goold imported 135 Old Master Paintings from Rome to decorate the churches he was commissioning from Wardell and other architects. Our project has identified some 65 late Baroque pictures in Melbourne churches. Some of the results will be presented for the first time in this lecture, often identifying provenances from inscriptions in the reverse.
