Valentin de Boulogne: Allegory of Italy

Sinebrychoff Art Museum, Helsinki

  • 6.9.2023–12.1.2025

The monumental painting Allegory of Italy (1628–29) by Valentin de Boulogne (1591–1632) will be deposited at the Sinebrychoff Art Museum during the renovation of the Villa Lante, the Finnish Institute in Rome.


Valentin is one of Caravaggios (1571–1610) closest followers. The mini-exhibition will present to the public the unique historical context of the painting.

Allegory of Italy (oil on canvas, 333 x 245 cm) represents the pinnacle of Valentins work. It is a representative example from the golden age of Roman Baroque painting. Researchers consider the large-scale painting to be the artists main work, along with an altarpiece in the Vaticans collections. Finnish art collections do not include any similar work from the Italian Baroque period.
