Fra Bartolommeo

Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam

NOW CLOSED

The Divine Renaissance

In Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen this autumn, discover the masterpieces of Fra Bartolommeo (1473-1517), the Italian monk and artist from the famous monastery of San Marco in Florence. He, Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael and Michelangelo were the four most important artists of the High Renaissance. Paintings by Fra Bartolommeo have never been seen in the Netherlands before; some have never even left Italy. After five hundred years these paintings will be reunited with their preparatory studies in Rotterdam. Loans are coming from some of the world’s greatest museums, including the Uffizi in Florence, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Louvre in Paris. Read more.
