Barocci: Brilliance and Grace Exhibition, National Gallery, London
Barocci: Brilliance and Grace Exhibition, National Gallery, London

Experience the charm and sensitivity of Barocci’s masterpieces – never before seen outside Italy.


Federico Barocci (1535–1612) is celebrated as one of the most talented artists of late 16th century Italy. Fascinated by the human form, he fused charm and compositional harmony with an unparalleled sensitivity to colour.

The exhibition will showcase Federico Barocci’s most spectacular altarpieces, including his famous 'Entombment' from Senigallia and 'Last Supper' from Urbino Cathedral, thanks to the cooperation of the Soprintendenze delle Marche.

In total 14 of his most important altarpieces and devotional paintings and four of his finest portraits will be on display alongside their preparatory drawings and oil sketches, revealing the fertility of Barocci’s imagination, the diversity of his working methods and the sheer beauty and grace of his art.

About the artist

Barocci’s works, drawn from life and inspired by the people and animals that surrounded him, are characterised by a warmth and humanity that transform his religious subjects into themes with which all can identify.

He was an incessant and even obsessive draughtsman, preparing every composition with prolific studies in every conceivable medium.
