The National Gallery - Mantegna and Bellini

A tale of two artists and brothers-in-law, ‘Mantegna and Bellini’ tells a story of art, family, rivalry, and personality.
Andrea Mantegna’s brilliant compositional innovation and Giovanni Bellini’s atmospheric, natural landscapes were groundbreaking – no one had seen anything like it before. Following their respective careers in Padua and Venice, and Mantegna’s fame as court painter to the powerful Gonzaga family in nearby Mantua, ‘Mantegna and Bellini’ is the first-ever exhibition to explore the creative links between these artists.
It is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see in London rare loans of paintings and drawings from around the world by two of the most influential artists of the Renaissance.
