Michel Sittow: Estonian Painter at the Courts of Renaissance Europe

(Thursday) (Sunday)

Overview: Undoubtedly the greatest Renaissance artist from Estonia, Michel Sittow (c. 1469–1525) was born in Reval (now Tallinn in present-day Estonia), likely studied in Bruges with Hans Memling, and worked at the courts of renowned European royals such as King Ferdinand of Aragon and Queen Isabella of Castille. Through some 20 works, representing most of Sittow's small oeuvre, the exhibition will offer an opportunity to examine his art in a broader context, including a possible collaboration with Juan de Flandes and Sittow's relationship to his Netherlandish contemporaries. The exhibition will be presented by both museums to mark the occasion of the centennial of the Estonian Republic and its presidency of the European Union from January through June 2018.Organization: Organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and the Art Museum of Estonia/Kumu Art Museum, Tallinn
