abstract

In March 1868, Vitaliano Crivelli and Giulio Sanpietro signed the appraisal of the Milanese banker Ambrogio Uboldo’s art collections, inherited by the future hospital located in his villa in Cernusco sul Naviglio: it was the beginning of an irreparable dispersion of works of art. Moving from that archival document, this essay aims to offer a virtual reconstruction of Uboldo’s gallery, also supported by the identification of a small number of the collection’s paintings. The range of subjects, art forms and genres (landscape and history paintings, portraits, sculptures and engravings) reflect the variety of relations established by the collector with the Milan art scene in the first half of the 19th century.
