Italian painting on stone 1530-1555

The Prado houses a select collection of Italian Renaissance paintings executed on slate or white marble. These extremely fragile works by Sebastiano del Piombo, Titian and the Bassanos reflect the shift in artistic techniques that came about in the early decades of the 16th century. This period also saw the emergence of characteristically Renaissance aesthetic and philosophical concepts: the reproduction of new pictorial effects; the codification of the perception of the natural world in classic texts; the paragone with sculpture; and the desire for immortality. This exhibition is the result of an in-depth study undertaken with the support of other disciplines including natural history, geology and archaeology.
