Madonna - Treasures of the Vatican Museums
For the first time in Portugal, a group of works from the famous collections of the Vatican Museums.
For the first time in Portugal, a group of works from the famous collections of the Vatican Museums, especially its precious Pinacoteca, compose an exhibition in Lisboa that includes paintings by Italian Primitives (Taddeo di Bartolo, Sano di Pietro, Fra Angelico), and great Renaissance and Baroque masters (Rafael, Pinturicchio, Salviati, Pietro da Cortona and Barocci), as well as notable tapestries and illuminated codices from the Vatican Apostolic Library collection. Paintings from the Borghese Gallery (Venusti and Sassoferrato) and the Corsini Gallery (Gentileschi and Van Dyck) complete the ensemble. In a chronological arc that goes from the end of antiquity to modern times, the iconography of the Virgin Mary is the main thematic axis of the exhibition, which also includes a nucleus of works by Italian painters from a number of Portuguese institutions, both public and private. Until 10th September, 10 am to 6 pm, Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga, Rua das Janelas Verdes (buses: 713, 714, 727). Tickets: 6 euros.
