Face to Face: Flanders, Florence, and Renaissance Painting
UNITED STATES
SAN MARINO, CALIFORNIA  •  The Huntington Library  •  Ongoing
 
 

Face to Face: Flanders, Florence, and Renaissance Painting, an exhibition of about 30 paintings and about 10 illuminated manuscripts drawn from The Huntington’s collections and those of several other institutions in the United States and Europe.

While many exhibitions have shed light on the beauty of Flemish 15th-century painting, and even more have celebrated the glory of Italian Renaissance painting, this will be the first in the United States to explore how Flemish painting helped make the innovative, sophisticated, and beautiful works of the Italian Renaissance possible. Masterworks by artists such as Jan van Eyck, Hans Memling, Pietro Perugino, and Domenico Ghirlandaio will be brought together to show the results of artistic contact between the two creative centers in Flanders (located in present day Belgium, France, and the Netherlands) and Florence.
