SMB Metropolitan Museum of Art


From 25 August to 20 November 2011

The Staatliche Museen zu Berlin and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, are organizing a unique exhibition on the art of portraiture in the Italian Renaissance.

Beautiful women and wealthy merchants carry us away to Florence and Venice. Schemers, courtiers, and military commanders tell their stories. Great museums will be sending masterworks from Donatello to Leonardo da Vinci to the Bode-Museum.
