About

Experience the charm and sensitivity of Barocci's masterpieces — never before seen outside Italy. Federico Barocci (about 1533—1612) is celebrated as one of the most talented artists of late 16th century Italy. Fascinated by the human form, he fused charm and compositional harmony with an unparalleled sensitivity to colour. The exhibition will showcase Federico Barocci's most spectacular altarpieces, including his famous 'Entombment' from Senigallia and 'Last Supper' from Urbino Cathedral, thanks to the cooperation of the Soprintendenze delle Marche. The display assembles the majority of Barocci's greatest altarpieces and paintings, together with sequences of dazzling preparatory drawings, allowing visitors to understand how each picture evolved and revealing the fertility of Barocci's imagination, the diversity of his working methods and the sheer beauty and grace of his art.
