With this ambitious exhibition the Scuderie del Quirinale sets out to offer the Italian museum-going public its very first opportunity to enjoy a sweeping retrospective of the art of Hans Memling, an artist who rose to become the most important painter in Bruges – the financial hub of Flanders and one of the most advanced centres of artistic output in the region – following after the death of his master Rogier van der Weyden in the second half of the 15th century.
This monographic exhibition, a first in Italy, highlights all of the outstanding features that characterise the art of this absolute master of the Flemish Renaissance, exploring every aspect of his career and work from his monumental altarpieces to his small portable triptychs, in addition to his famous portraits, a genre in which he perfected the style that sets the sitter against a landscape backdrop – a style which was to have a major influence on numerous early 16th century Italian artists.
