Art and Heritage in Central Europe
The exhibition coincides with the 500th anniversary of the death of Pietro Perugino, the eminent early Renaissance painter and draughtsman, pupil of Piero della Francesca and teacher of Raphael Santi, eyewitness and participant in the transformations depicted.
This is the first exhibition in Poland to explore the subject in such a thorough and comprehensive way, using so many valuable monuments of ancient and early Renaissance art – sculptures, paintings, drawings and prints. The more than 160 exhibits on display have been borrowed from over fifty institutions and private collections, including the Uffizi Gallery (Florence), the Borghese Gallery (Rome), the Louvre, the British Museum and the National Gallery of Art in Washington.
The exhibition features works by Antico, Bellini, Botticelli, Bramante, Bramantino, Filarete, Lombardo, Mantegna, Verrocchio and the aforementioned Pietro Perugino.
It is available at the Royal Castle in Warsaw from 18 July to 15 October 2023.
