When?

14. 9. 2016 – 4. 12. 2016

Marcantonio Raimondi (c. 1480–1534) is the only graphic artist to whom Giorgio Vasari devoted a separate entry in his famous treatise Lives of the Most Eminent Painters, Sculptors, and Architects. Such exclusivity does indeed testify to the respect enjoyed by the artist, as well as to his historical significance.

The intimate exhibition, held in the Schwarzenberg Palace, will present paramount works by Marcantonio from the collections of the National Gallery in Prague, and will lay emphasis on the cooperation between the famed engraver and the great painter.
