Painters from Brescia in the Cosway Collection in Lodi MONJA FARAONI The article addresses a previously unpublished corpus of paintings, part of the Cosway Collection in Lodi and attributed to the artist Giovanni Renica (1808-1884) from Brescia. It consists in some small oil landscapes and a Portrait of Father Christopher, the back of which reveals a manifold dedication indicating 1872 as the date of acquisition of all the paintings, a gift from the artist to Elena Solera, at the time Mother Superior of the famous boarding school founded by Maria Hadfield Cosway in 1812. The links between the institution and painters from Brescia were already revealed by the group portrait in which Gabriele Rottini celebrated Cosway’s philanthropic activity in 1834-35, depicting the woman together with other English dames and some students during a lecture. Another painting by Rottini in the collection is a small Portrait of a Girl, probably Cosway’s daughter Mariannina, herself a student of the school.
