The National Gallery is #19 in our London Bucket List

This one room exhibition will showcase two masterpieces by the Spanish painter Maino -- on display in the UK for the very first time.

The two paintings have been loaned from the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid, and provide us with a rare opportunity to see a remarkable artist who's name remains largely unknown outside of Spain.

'The Adoration of the Shepherds' and 'The Adoration of the Kings' date from the early 17th-century, and originally formed part of an altarpiece in the Dominican house of San Pedro Martir. They are wildly considered two of Maino's greatest works, combining the naturalism of Caravaggio, with the palettes and classical styles of Gentileschi, Carracci and Guido Reni.
