Artists of the North
Tradition and innovation: a different perspective
The painters of the Italian Renaissance have already proclaimed themselves as the ultimate pinnacle of European culture, when the German, Dutch and Flemish masters were just about to find their own voice. To be fair, who would have had the time to flourish when the winds of Reformation, civil war and the Thirty Years' War swept over the continent? The piercing wind, the grim mountains and the realist representation of all these set the northern masters apart from their Italian colleagues. We trace back the stories, the artistic struggles and the historical context behind these artworks.
Dürer: Genius and Melancholy
Planning and revising: from a fixed to an evolving perspective Personalities: behavioral patterns and effective communication
Let us walk together surrounded by the drawings and engravings of the master of the German Renaissance, Albrecht Dürer. While we play and chat, we summarize the most important facts about the cultural context. We can enjoy the details of the pictures in proper close-ups, in a way that would be impossible within the space of the exhibition. We present a selection of artworks from the Gothic through the Renaissance and Mannerist eras to two centuries of German, Dutch and Flemish artworks, including the drawings and engravings of Dürer. We get to know up to 54 artworks, that taken together can be seen as the visual encyclopedia of the 15th and 16th century.
We are able to present the exhibition within the framework of MuseumFlow Becoming an icon: identity and self-assertion or Resilience and adaptation: mental and emotional dynamism
The National Gallery’s most successful temporary exhibition to date, the 2018 Frida Kahlo Exhibition is now available online. The myth comes to life once again, where we get to know the life story of the 20th century artist, Frida Kahlo. We experience the vibrant colours and cultural traditions of Mexico, as well as glimpse into the exceptional atmosphere of Casa Azul. The oeuvre of Frida Kahlo is presented through 30 of her paintings. The artworks are interlaced with the themes of passion, pain and the will to life.
The Medici Dynasty: Artists of power
Values and strategy: brand-building, CSR, sponsoring and supporting of the arts
If you are unable to tell something, just show it! We shed light on the omnipresent net of power, from the center of which the Medici family ruled the financial, political and cultural trends of Renaissance Europe. For centuries, the Medici’s were unable to wield power openly: this made them the genuine masters of cultural representation. No wonder, that the roots of contemporary academied and museums can be traced back to Florence. We show you what only the most initiated eye can reveal: the traces of Medici power within the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts.
