Italian Masterpieces: From Spain's Royal Court, Museo del Prado
MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA  •  National Gallery of Victoria  •  16 May - 31 August 2014

This Melbourne exclusive exhibition has been drawn from the Museo del Prado, Madrid, and showcases over 100 works comprising 70 paintings, some measuring over 3 metres, alongside more than 30  drawings – the largest number of Italian works the Museo del Prado has ever loaned to one exhibition. The show features important works by masters such as Raphael, Titian and Tiepolo.

In the sixteenth century, the Spanish ruler Emperor Charles V began a tradition of acquiring Italian paintings. Successive rulers also commissioned works directly from the artists in Italy or enticed them to Spain to work in the Royal Household. Such is the scale of this exhibition that visitors can trace the stylistic development of Italian art across three centuries drawn from Italy’s key cultural centres including Rome, Venice and Naples.

The Ancient World: Mesoamerica
MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA  •  National Gallery of Victoria International  •  1 January 2010 - 31 December 2014
The pre-hispanic civilisation of Mesoamerica stands with Egypt and Mesopotamia as one of the world’s great early civilisations. For over three thousand years, a number of cultures flourished and produced extraordinary works, many depicting the human world and the natural forces that shape its affairs. Most of the stunning Mesoamerican ceramic, shell and stone objects that are on display were created to accompany the honoured dead to the afterlife.
