Heads Up – Italian Masterpieces from Spain’s Royal Court, Museo del Prado


Correggio, Noli me tangere, Prado, Madrid

 The finest collection of Italian Masterpieces ever to come to Australia will open at the National Gallery of Victoria on 16 May. Featuring some of the most outstanding works from masters such as Raphael, Titian and Tiepolo the exhibition represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity in Australia to see some of the most extraordinary Italian works produced during the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries, many from the Royal Court in Spain.

This Melbourne exclusive exhibition has been drawn from one of the world’s most celebrated collections, Museo del Prado, Madrid, and will showcase over 100 works comprising 70 paintings, some measuring over 3 metres, alongside more than 30 superb drawings – the largest number of Italian works the Museo del Prado has ever loaned to one exhibition.   

The exhibition will reflect the taste of the Spanish Royal Court whose Kings and courtiers avidly collected Italian art and will present more than 70 Italian masters including Raphael, Correggio, Titian, Tintoretto, the Carracci and Tiepolo.
