The National Gallery's exhibition will explore the artistic relationship between two of the greatest Renaissance masters: Sebastiano del Piombo and Michelangelo, from the 1510s through to the 1540s

They first met in Rome in 1511, where Michelangelo was finishing his work on the Sistine Chapel, and soon became friends and even collaborated on several works.

'A Meeting of Minds' will feature two of these collaborations. One of them is already in the National Gallery collection: 'The Raising of Lazarus', which was painted for the Cathedral of Narbonne; whilst the second is a loan: the 'Pieta' for San Francesco in Viterbo.

Other works that preceded their meeting will also be on display, alongside some examples of their correspondence, which provide us with a behind-the-scenes look at their personal and creative lives.
