In partnership with the Réunion des musées nationaux - Grand Palais, the Musée Magnin in Dijon, and with the collaboration of the Fondazione De Vito, the Musée Granet is presenting the exhibition Naples for Passion, Masterpieces from the De Vito Collection from 15 July to 29 October 2023.
One of the most prestigious groups of seventeenth-century Neapolitan paintings in the world, both in terms of its content and the quality of its works, it was collected by Giuseppe De Vito (1924 - 2015), who became a leading specialist in the Neapolitan art of the Seicento.
Almost the entire collection, some forty paintings, will be on display in the Musée Granet’s 700 sq.m temporary exhibition area.
Musée Granet has a tradition of displaying prestigious private collections, often unknown to the public, and Masterpieces from the De Vito Collection is the latest show in its Italian cycle, after Via Roma and Italia discreta in 2022.
The museum will also take this opportunity to present a selection of Neapolitan masterpieces from its own collection.
This exhibition will explore the emergence of Naples as a leading artistic centre in the seventeenth century, in the wake of Caravaggio and under the influence of different artistic movements, including naturalism, classicism and Baroque, which had a lasting impact on the way many artists presented in this exhibition painted.
The first section of the exhibition, Giuseppe De Vito: Collector and Art Historian, is also an opportunity to learn more about a man who was passionate about art and internationally renowned for his learning and his “eye”.

This entrance is also available the same day to the annex Site Granet XXe Collection Jean Planque,  located Place Jean Boyer (on the top of Marechal Joffre street).
