From August 25th the Italian Renaissance portraiture at Berlin’s Bode Museum

The Renaissance Faces, Gesichter der Renaissance, is the title of the exhibition that you can admire at the Bode Museum in Berlin from August 25th to November 20th, in collaboration with the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. The Bode Museum is located on the Museums Island, Museumsinsel, which is to the north of River Spree.

The exhibition will be an opportunity to admire works by Botticelli, Bellini, Antonello da Messina and Pisanello, with a focus on Renaissance art from Florence, Venice and Northern Italy. More than 150 paintings will be on display, as well as sculptures and drawings of the faces of the nobles, ladies, lower class men and women of the fifteenth century.

This will be an opportunity not only to admire the craftsmanship of some of the greatest painters and artists of the time, but also to get closer to that world, including its clothing and everyday objects, to learn about that historical period through the expressiveness and the dynamism of the characters’ faces.

The exhibited works come from several museums: the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the Berliner Gemälde Galerie, Berlin’s portrait gallery, and other international museums. The exhibition will move to the Met of Art on Fifth Avenue at Central Park in New York from 19 December 2011 to 18 March 2012.
