Capuchin Museum – Sacred paintings

The Capuchin Museum boasts a number of paintings with sacred subjects that deserve special mention for their historical and artistic importance, such as the altarpiece with St. Francis praying before the crucifix by Bartolomeo Passerotti, once in the Capuchin church, or the beautiful canvas with the Holy Family with St. John and the Mystic Marriage of St. Catherine of Alexandria by Camillo Procaccini from Bologna, characterised by the softened style of the early Lombard period. But the compact nucleus of paintings that characterises the Capuchin Pinacoteca is certainly the heterogeneous one by Giuseppe Barnaba Solieri from Carpi, a painter, sculptor and engraver who entered the Capuchin Religion in 1736 under the name of Fra Stefano da Carpi, to whom the studies of Father Raffaele Russo have restored the pertinent critical appreciation.
