500 Years of Italian Art

Sat 23 March 2013, 11.00amSun 23 June 2013, 5.00pm

Bellini, Botticelli, Titian

This spectacular exhibition comprises forty of the City of Glasgow’s greatest Italian paintings – the finest and most comprehensive civic collection in the UK, and mostly unseen outside Glasgow. The works are of the highest quality and richness and chronicle a remarkable time span from 1400 – 1900, demonstrating the gradual move from religious to secular subjects. This outstanding exhibition includes landscapes, portraits and devotional works from the Renaissance by artists such as Giovanni Bellini, Sandro Botticelli, Titian, Salvator Rosa and Francesco Guardi.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a redisplay of works within Compton Verney’s own Neapolitan Collection in the first Naples gallery.

Publications to accompany the exhibition can be found here.

Exhibition organised by Glasgow Museums.
