IDENTICAL YET DIFFERENT
▼ Two paintings by Andrea Mantegna and Giovanni Bellini, two of the greatest artists of the Italian Renaissance, both featuring an identical compositional structure. This exhibition compares two works depicting the same subject and explores the relationship between two of the greatest exponents of Italian Renaissance art, who also happened to be related by marriage. The mounting of this ‘magical comparison' at the Querini Stampalia Foundation was entrusted to renowned architect Mario Botta.
