Italian Masters

The Wawel Royal Castle in Kraków announced that the exceptional work of the Renaissance master Giovanni Bellini – “Madonna and Child”, will join the permanent exhibition in the Wawel’s collection. It is one of the most outstanding Italian paintings of the period to be found in Poland, which premiered during the unique presentation of paintings by “The Masters of Italian Renaissance” at the Castle’s Representative Royal Chambers. The exhibition also features works by Jacopo Bassano and Rosso Fiorentino, and is complemented by Titian and Padovanino. “All the works presented in our museum demonstrate the greatness of the royal residence, referring to its historical splendor. I am glad that we managed to prepare an extraordinary show where we present large-scale painting works by important and unique Renaissance masters. We present for the first time “Madonna and Child” by Giovanni Bellini, one of the most outstanding painters of this period, but we also compare two “Allegories of Love” by Titian and Padovanino (ours and from the collections of the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna), which further increases the prestige of the Wawel collections. Moreover, these works are a perfect complement to one of the most valuable collections of Italian paintings from the 15th and 16th centuries in Poland, which can be admired here” – says Prof. Andrzej Betlej, director of the Wawel Royal Castle. The exhibition is open only until February 18.
