The magnificent Christ Church gallery hosts an exciting exhibition of some hidden treasures.

This exhibition will introduce the least known group of old master drawings from Christ Church, which boasts a strong collection, especially of Italian art from the fourteenth to the eighteenth centuries.The twenty nine drawings on display will offer a glimpse into the wide range of Neapolitan draughtsmanship, including works by Jusepe de Ribera, Salvator Rosa and Luca Giordano. It offers therefore, a great opportunity to examine the development of the style of drawing in Naples through the Baroque period.
