Palazzo Barberini stages an exhibition of works by Antoniazzo Romano (c.1430–c.1510), an Early Renaissance painter and leading figure of the Roman school during the 15th century. The exhibition illustrates the development and key moments in the artistic career of the important Rome artist who was a contemporary of Piero della Francesca, Domenico Ghirlandaio, Melozzo da Forlì and Perugino. Romano's sacred work was much in demand from the Vatican, religious communities and noble families, particularly his depictions of the Madonna which were characterised by a similarity to modern females of that period. The 50 works on display on the ground floor of Palazza Barberini include large religious paintings, altarpieces, panels and decorative frescoes, and reveal how the painter combined Renaissance innovations with the splendour of Mediaeval art.
