In the early 1970s Enrico Cortona established the Cortona Gallery in Milan. An enthusiastic collector and connoisseur of Old Master drawings and etchings, he started his business with the same verve that all true art lovers share. His passion drove him to start publishing catalogues raisonnés and organise exhibitions that centered on unusual and very particular themes. Soon afterwards, Enrico expanded his interests beyond Old Master drawings and prints into the field of antique paintings and sculpture. In 2015 Enrico's son, Federico, joined forces at the gallery. Sharing his father's passion for antique art, he started establishing the business on the international market producing noteworthy exhibitions and catalogues in Italian and English, published online. In addition to using the website to highlight the gallery's core business, its aim is also to create a useful resource for colleagues, art historians and art lovers where knowledge and ideas are freely shared between specialists; be they Superintendence functionaries, experts, university professors or researchers. This open exchange feeds into the production of the gallery's publications, which in turn will help further establish Cortona Fine Art among the more exacting collectors and international museums abroad. Indeed, the gallery stands proud of its notable sales towards both Italian and foreign museums. We are pleased to open our doors and share the fine intricacies of the art world. We are also proud to offer our clients maximum discretion, a profound knowledge and passion for Old Masters, the materials and techniques employed, the art market’s regulations, as well as our tight-knit network with other experts and professionals in the art world, aimed at a superior, more in-depth understanding of the great masters of the past.
