From September 13, 2019 to January 20, 2020, the Collection Alana unveils its Italian masterpiece paintings. Fra Angelico, Bellini, Tintoretto, Veronese, this fall 2019, we’re about to walk 5 centuries of painting, from the Italian Renaissance to the paintings of the 17th century thanks to 75 exceptional paintings.

This Fall 2019, the Musée Jacquemart-André gives pride of place to great art fans Alvaro Saieh and Ana Guzmán’s collection who merged their names to create the Alana Collection, one of the most precious and secrete private collections of Italian Renaissance art in the world!

Alongside its own Italian art collection to see, the private Parisian museum unveils the masterpieces of several of the greatest Italian masters including Fra Angelico, Uccello Bellini, Carpaccio, Tintoretto, Veronese, Bronzino and Gentileschi.

All in all 75 paintings that barely leave New York expect us in the hotel particulier set in Paris 8th arrondissement and it’s a wonderful discovery. Paolo Uccello’s The Virgin and Child, Agnolo di Cosimo’s Saint Côme, Guariento’s Triptych with the Crucifixion and Saint Jean-Baptiste, Saint André and Saint Catherine, Annival Carrache’s Annunciation, Tintoretto’s Episodes of a Battle, as well as Bartolomeo Manfredi’s Tavern Scene are on the menu.

Well known by art historians, this collection is yet still unknown by the general public as it is secret. It enjoys a very special story. Alvaro Saieh explains: “One day I bought a Sassoferrato of a very high quality simply because I like it. I saw it with my own eyes during a Christie’s auction sale. I found this Madona by Sassoferrato very beautifu and I started to get interested in this universe.”

He continues “I would simply tell [the visitor] to look and enjoy. To quietly walk around and stop in front of the painting catching his eye. No one has the same reaction to a work of art, it’s a personal bound”.
