"Castiglione: Lost Genius" at The Queen's Gallery, Palace of Holyroodhouse

One of the great artists of the Baroque, Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione (1609-64) was perhaps the most innovative and technically brilliant Italian draftsman of his time. This exhibition showcases Castiglione's works and discusses them in the context of important new archival research on the artist's turbulent career and reputation.
