Calendar Add to the calendar

The exhibition Fra Angelico and the Rise of the Florentine Renaissance will investigate the beginnings of the Florentine Renaissance art in the 1420s and 1430s with the friar painter Fra Angelico at the centre of the story. Fra Angelico is one of the great masters of Renaissance art and responsible for its early achievements in Florence alongside the painters Masaccio, Masolino, Uccello and Filippo Lippi, the sculptors Ghiberti, Donatello, and Nanni di Banco, and the architect Brunelleschi.

The exhibition will focus around The Annunciation, as well as two other recently acquired paintings by Angelico: the Alba Madonna and the Funeral of Saint Anthony Abbot. Both paintings come from the collections of the Duke of Alba.
