Bartolomé Bermejo: Master of the Spanish Renaissance

Published August 9, 2019

From the glimmer of a jewel to the sheen of armour, Bermejo’s ability to capture light, colours and textures in oil painting was unparalleled in 15th-century Spain.

Bringing together seven of his rare works, six of which have never been seen in the UK, this exhibition explores how Bermejo drew inspiration from Netherlandish painting, using illusionistic effects and a rich colour palette, to become one of the greatest artists of the Spanish Renaissance.

The exhibition runs from June 12 – September 29 2019 at the National Gallery, Trafalgar Square, London, WC2N 5DN United Kingdom.
