Mantegna and Bellini

(Monday) (Sunday)

Explore the relationship between two of the greatest artists of the Italian Renaissance, Giovanni Bellini and Andrea Mantegna

Comprising major loans of paintings, drawings, and particularly sculpture, ‘Mantegna and Bellini’ compares the work of two pre-eminent artists who also happened to be related by marriage.

Central to the exhibition are two historic juxtapositions of Mantegna’s and Bellini’s depictions of ‘The Agony in the Garden’, and two versions of ‘The Presentation to the Temple’ – Mantegna’s from the Gemäldegalerie, Berlin and Bellini’s from the Fondazione Querini Stampalia, Venice. 

In 1460, Mantegna moved to Mantua, while Bellini, who died 10 years later, remained in Venice. Despite the distance between them, their work provides evidence of their continuing creative artistic exchange for the rest of their long lives.

Exhibition organised by the National Gallery and the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin
