The Lampronti Gallery welcomes visitors to discover the wonderful exhibition, The Italianate Landscape: Travels of Nordic Artists in Italy. The exhibition brings forth a collection of paintings by artists such as Nicolas Poussin, Gaspar Van Wittel and many more, whose travels through Italy would fundamentally influence the course of their artistic formation.  Initially accustomed to a more contained and reserved style inherent of Northern pictorial tradition, the contact with Italy and its intrinsic emotive spirit would bring an irreversible formative evolution and expressive completeness, characterised by a joyous fusion between the Northern technical precision and the forceful sentimental splendour of the Italian landscape.
