Born out of a merger of two historic galleries, both present on the market for generations, Francesca Antonacci Damiano Lapiccirella Fine Art has become a reference point for fans of Grand Tour paintings, drawings, and sculptures by European artists from between the second half of the 18th century and the first half of the 20th century, and also an exhibition space for shows which are frequently museum-worthy. Over the years, the gallery has taken part in the most prestigious of antiques exhibitions such as the Salon du Dessin and the Biennale des Antiquaires in Paris, Masterpiece London, and TEFAF New York; it also exhibits regularly at TEFAF Maastricht and at the International Biennial of Antiques in Palazzo Corsini, Florence. In the course of its activity, many of its works have joined major public collections such as the National Gallery in Washington, the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, the Modern Art Gallery of Palazzo Pitti in Florence, the Polo Museale Fiorentino, the Capodimonte Museum in Naples, the Prague Museum, the Villa Mansi Museum in Lucca, the Fontainebleau Museum, the Hamburger Kunsthalle in Hamburg, the Musée D'Orsay, the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, the Toledo Museum of Art, USA, as well as numerous private collections.
