The exhibition reveals the meandering paths of diplomatic history under the guidance of art and also introduces us to intriguing personalities. The artist brings a new approach to the art patronage and ambassadors’ portraits from 17th to the 19th centuries while investigating the dichotomous lives of these ambassadors and painters.
