The major highlights include:
Di Cesare bronze Nymph
A bronze sculpture of a Nymph by Carlo di Cesare del Palagio (1540-1598), circa 1590-1593.
Recently discovered by Benjamin Proust, this exquisite bronze is a new addition to the oeuvre of di Cesare, a Florentine Renaissance sculptor working at the Saxon Court in Dresden.
Bought by an American private collector from Proust, it will go on loan to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York later this year.

Commissioned by a member of the Venetian patrician Grimani family.
Acquired on the Italian art market for a European collector.
