Giovanni Bellini and Andrea Mantegna were two of the greatest artists of the Italian Renaissance.

Mantega worked as a court painter to the ruling Gonzaga family in Mantua, wheras Bellini spent his entire career in Republican Venice. This exhibition will explore the ongoing exchange of artistic ideas between the two artists throughout their long careers, despite them working in completely different parts of the country.

The exhibition will include important loans of paintings, drawings and sculptures. Highlights include two versions of The Presentation to the Temple, and Mantegna's and Bellini's depiction of the same subject: The Agony in the Garden.
