A pupil of Titian in Venice shortly after the mid-sixteenth century and master in Milan of Caravaggio, who frequented his workshop between 1584 and 1588, Simone Peterzano (c. 1535 - 1599) was one of the crucial protagonists of the Lombard artistic culture of the second half of the 16th century. However, a monographic exhibition capable of retracing its activity and celebrating its talent has never been dedicated to this personality who with his singular professional career acted as a trait d'union between two of the greatest authorities of Italian painting of the time. This monograph, which is accompanied by the Bergamo exhibition, intends to fill this gap by investigating the art of the ancient master starting from his Venetian season (which lasted until the early seventies of the sixteenth century) with the full inclusion of Peterzano in the mid-lagoon culture Cinquecento, also confirmed by the singular iconographic choices adopted by the painter in these years. Already in the second half of the seventies of the sixteenth century, Simone's language in fact turned towards a more contained colorism and greater realistic dryness, suitable for interpreting the needs of post-Tridentine religious clients. These new requests are accompanied by a recovery of the tradition of Brescia and Bergamo naturalism of the first half of the sixteenth century, and in particular of the Moretto and Savoldo models. In this perspective, the entrance into the workshop of the painter, around 1584, of the very young Caravaggio, at the time not yet thirteen years old, for which the relationship of discipleship had to represent a nodal passage in his formation, was an opportunity full of consequences. of a deepening of the naturalistic and luministic experiences of the Lombard sixteenth century, fundamental stylistic and cultural reference of all his first activity.
