Sotheby’s is honored to present for sale a group of outstanding Italian paintings and sculptures, from Renaissance to Mannerism, assembled by Fabrizio Moretti. Though still only in his late 30s, Mr. Moretti has for some years been a leading figure in the field of Italian art. The works included in the sale reflect both the range and the quality for which he is best known.
Proceeds from the sale will benefit two causes very dear to his heart: The Fabrizio Moretti Foundation, which works to give those with certain disabilities access to the therapeutic benefits of horses, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, where funds from the sale will be dedicated to the study and conservation of Italian Old Master Paintings.
