About Barocci: Brilliance and Grace

Barocci: Brilliance and Grace
The National Gallery, Trafalgar Square, London
27 February – 19 May 2013

Experience the charm and sensitivity of Barocci’s masterpieces, never before seen outside Italy.

Federico Barocci (1535–1612) 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. Barocci’s pioneering art links the beauty of the High Renaissance with the dynamism of the Baroque.

The exhibition showcases 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.

In total, 14 of his most important altarpieces and devotional paintings and four of his finest portraits will be on display alongside more than 65 preparatory drawings and oil sketches, revealing the fertility of Barocci’s imagination, his obsessive draughtsmanship, the diversity of his working methods and the sheer beauty and grace of his art.

Barocci’s works, drawn from life and inspired by the people and animals that surrounded him, are characterised by a warmth and humanity that transform his religious subjects into themes with which all can identify.
