Exhibition Explores Flemish Painters’ Influence on Italian Renaissance

While many exhibitions have shed light on the beauty of Flemish 15th-century painting, and even more have celebrated the glory of Italian Renaissance painting, this will be the first in the United States to explore how Flemish painting helped make the innovative, sophisticated, and beautiful works of the Italian Renaissance possible. Masterworks by artists such as Jan van Eyck, Hans Memling, Pietro Perugino, and Domenico Ghirlandaio will be brought together to show the results of artistic contact between the two creative centers in Flanders (located in present day Belgium, France, and the Netherlands) and Florence.The exhibition at The Huntington opens September 28 and runs through January 13.
