30 Sept 2008-11 Jan 2009. This retrospective is dedicated to Giovanni Bellini (1430-1516), better known as Giambellino, one of the most famous Italian Renaissance painters. On display are about 60 paintings of sacred and profane subjects. The collection covers three quarters of Bellini’s known production, with contributions from the most important museums in Europe and the United States, as well as from Italian museums and churches, the Vatican and the city of Venice. As well as his more famous works, such as the Madonnas, there are also two large altarpieces, the Baptism of Christ, commissioned for the church of S. Corona in Vicenza and the Pesaro altarpiece. His oil paintings offer heartfelt and intimately Venetian subjects bathed in soft lighting.
