From Raphael to Carracci: The Art of Papal Rome
29 May 2009 - 07 Sep 2010
Designed as a sequel to the highly successful and critically acclaimed exhibition on Renaissance Florence in 2005, From Raphael to Carracci: The Art of Papal Rome will feature a unique and unprecedented group of works by some of the most celebrated names in Italian art. Ottawa will be the only venue for this extraordinary exhibition, which will survey and illuminate one of the most significant periods in art history: 16th-century Rome. Approximately 150 paintings and drawings will be displayed, including rare works by such acknowledged masters as Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian, El Greco, Giorgio Vasari, Federico Barocci, and Annibale Carracci, as well as lesser-known but nonetheless superb artists, many of whom have only recently been appreciated for their skill and relevance. Take this unique opportunity to see the works of eminent European Artists. From Raphael to Carracci: The Art of Papal Rome is the must-see exhibition this summer at the National Gallery of Canada.
