The brilliant art of Baroque artist Castiglione is re-evaluated at The Queen's Gallery this autumn.

Not so much lost but more slightly misplaced for a while, Castiglione’s genius has taken the back seat for far too long as (arguably) lesser Baroque artists have hogged the limelight. Looking to make good and remedy this situation, The Queen's Gallery are staging the UK's first major exhibition of his work, showing off around 90 drawings and prints from the Royal Collection.

The innovative draughtsman of the 17th century was a complex character, one who was in danger of being remembered for his infamous violent outbursts as much as for his art. With his working style often described as being unique, the Genoan trained genius conjured up strikingly modern looking efforts, mixing drawing, painting and printmaking methods to great effect.
