Introduction to "In lapide depictum"

Ana González Mozo, Senior Restorer in the Museum’s Restoration Department and curator of the exhibition, comments this introduction to "In lapide depictum". Museo Nacional del Prado. 17/04/2018 - 08/05/2018.

The exhibition brings together a selection of nine paintings on monochrome stone (slate and white marble) by Italian painters such as Sebastiano del Piombo, Titian, Daniele da Volterra and Leandro Bassano, which reflect the consolidation of a new approach to artistic techniques that emerged in the early decades of the 16th century. They are displayed alongside classical Roman works and specimens of natural stone that provide a context for the relationship between painting and natural history, geology and archaeology.
