Delve into the history of how Saint Michael has appeared in paintings over the centuries and the art of Bartolomé Bermejo with our Director Gabriele Finaldi.
From the glimmer of a jewel to the sheen of armour, Bermejo’s ability to capture light, colours and textures in oil painting was unparalleled in 15th-century Spain. Bringing together seven of his rare works, six of which have never been seen in the UK, this exhibition explores how Bermejo drew inspiration from Netherlandish painting, using illusionistic effects and a rich colour palette, to become one of the greatest artists of the Spanish Renaissance: https://bit.ly/2EPLpCE
