A View from the Spanish Steps
Hidden beside the Spanish steps, the sophisticated Roman collection assembled by Signora Maria Angiolillo has borne silent witness to Roman intellectual, cultural and political life over the last 50 years. A celebration of l'art du vivre, the remarkable series of salotti reflect a truly international taste with a distinctive Italian flair. In every direction, one's eye is drawn to works of Rococo whimsy and Neoclassical restraint, understated opulence and technical virtuosity, united by a free and refreshingly modernist creative spirit; it is a treasure trove that has remained hidden for almost half a century. The remainder of the collection, A View from the Spanish Steps, will be auctioned at Christie's King Street on 15th July.
