Old Master Paintings

Galleria Porcini, Naples

By Sotheby's

V incenzo Porcini founded the Napoli Nobilissima gallery across the street from the Naples Accademia di Belle Arti in 1969. Twenty years later he moved to the present, well-known location in Palazzo De Majo, an 18th-century building at 6 Piazza Vittoria, where he specialized in paintings and sculpture from the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries, especially Neapolitan and foreign artists active in Italy.

The Galleria Porcini, as it was now named, expanded into the great frescoed halls on the piano nobile, the main floor of the palazzo, becoming active internationally under the direction of Dario Porcini, who has broadened the family business with frequent cultural exchanges and professional activities. Thanks to his vast experience in the field, where he is in daily contact with centuries-old collections, impassioned collectors, historians, and researchers, he has become a highly respected expert for his clients in matters of attribution and restoration, and has been successful in acquiring and selling works of art that are unique and important and are now housed in private collections, foundations, and museums. The Galleria Porcini engages programmatically in research and study, has contributed to the recovery of lost works of art in various parts of the world, in order, if possibile, to have them restored to their rightful locations, and publishes in-depth catalogues curated by teachers of art history and art historians.

The Galleria Porcini participates in the two most important international art expositions, The European Fine Art Fair in Maastricht and the Biennale at Palazzo Corsini in Florence.
