From Raphael to Carracci: The Art of Papal Rome
OTTAWA • National Gallery of Canada • Ongoing
|From Raphael to Carracci: The Art of Papal Rome examines Renaissance Rome through a careful selection of 150 exceptional paintings and drawings. The show is arranged chronologically, pope by pope, from Julius II to Clement VIII, revealing an amazing diversity and a stunning wealth of works created through the unique arts patronage of the Roman Catholic Church. Some of the most celebrated masters of Italian art, including Raphael, Michelangelo, Salviati, Vasari, and Barocci, are strongly represented. The show also features lesser-known but nonetheless superb artists, many of whom have only recently been appreciated for their skill and relevance to the history of art. |
