The Renaissance. Now! - from Raphael to Titian
- paintings from 16th c. Italy
23.9.2016 - 15.1.2017
This is the first time that Raphael's paintings will be exhibited in Finland.
The exhibition presents approximately 50 large oil paintings by Italian Renaissance artists who worked in Lombardy, Venice and Milan between 1500 and 1600.
Along with Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, Raphael and Titian are some of the biggest names in Italian Renaissance art. The exhibition also marks the first time that works by other important artists, including Lorenzo Lotto, Tintoretto, Girolamo Romanino and Giovanni Battista Moroni, have been exhibited in Finland. The exhibition will include works by over 20 different artists.
The Renaissance brought to art a more realistic study of human anatomy and space and new kinds of subjects. In addition to religious themes, painters now depicted more secular subjects, such as scenes from Antiquity, landscapes and portraits.
The paintings in the exhibition are primarily on loan from Pinacoteca Tosio Martinengo in Brescia, one of the most important museums in the Lombardy region in Italy.
The exhibition also features an exhibition catalogue in Finnish and public events. The exhibition curator is Elena Lucchesi Ragni and the exhibition organiser is Davide Sandrini / StArt.

Hannu Palosuo's exhibition
History Never Sleeps (as for the Future, Listen:)
The National Museom of Finland, Pop-up & Lounge
30 September 2016 to 15 January 2017
Hannu Palosuo's exhibition opens at the National Museum of Finland on 30 September 2016. His paintings will be displayed in the museum's new pop up exhibition space, located next to the renovated museum shop. Palosuo's paintings provide a unique interpretation of renaissance art, exploring the boundary that separates 16th century paintings of saints from modern advertising images.
This year Palosuo is celebrating both the 20th anniversary of his career as an artist and his 50th birthday. To commemorate the occasion, Palosuo will be organising three private exhibitions at the National Museum of Finland, Gumbostrand Konst & Form in Sipoo and in Peru. The exhibitions will be accompanied by the publication of a book on the artist's works from recent years, written by Italian art critics and curators as well as the National Museum of Finland's Head of Exhibitions Minerva Keltanen.
