Meet the Masters: Mantegna and Bellini Discover two artists and brothers-in-law who changed the course of Western European art in this new exhibition at London’s National Portrait Gallery. ‘Mantegna and Bellini’ tells a story of art, family, rivalry, and personality. Andrea Mantegna’s brilliant compositional innovation and Giovanni Bellini’s atmospheric, natural landscapes were groundbreaking – no one had seen anything like it before. Following their respective careers in Padua and Venice, and Mantegna’s fame as court painter to the powerful Gonzaga family in nearby Mantua, ‘Mantegna and Bellini’ is the first ever exhibition to explore the creative links between these artists. From the 1st of October 2018 to the 27th of January 2019 in the Sainsbury Wing. Advance booking recommended.

About Italia!

The Dolomites are a popular summer retreat for many Italians. We’ll show you how walking takes precedence over the winter activities we usually associate with this beautiful region. We also visit the secret green spaces of Italy’s cities, perfect oases if you are taking a summer city break. And we visit Matera, a city once known as ‘the shame of Italy’ but now set to become the European Capital of Culture.
