WIN A VIP VISIT TO MICHELANGELO & SEBASTIANO AT THE NATIONAL GALLERY, WITH A HOTEL STAY.
Explore the extraordinary relationship between two great Italian masters, Michelangelo and Sebastiano del Piombo, reunited for the first time in the National Gallery's major exhibition. Featuring paintings, drawings, sculpture, letters, and a cutting-edge recreation of the Borgherini Chapel, transport yourself to the heart of High Renaissance Rome and experience works of striking force and originality.
Michelangelo and Sebastiano del Piombo found common ground in the fiercely competitive world of High Renaissance Rome. Their meeting sparked a remarkable 25-year friendship and partnership; yielding outstanding works of art that neither could have created without the other.
Including several exceptional first-time loans, the exhibition encompasses over sixty works produced by Michelangelo and Sebastiano before, during and after their association. Examples of their extensive, intimate correspondence, provide unique insight into their personal and creative lives, their concerns, frustrations, and moments of glory.
