EXHIBITION | Andrea del Verrocchio: Sculptor - Painter of Renaissance Florence

  • National Gallery of Art, West Building, Main Floor (map)

Andrea del Verrocchio (c. 1435–1488) was one of the most versatile, skilled, and inventive artists of the Italian Renaissance. In addition to creating exceptional works in all media—sculpture, painting, drawing, goldsmith work, architecture, and even engineering—Verrocchio also led one of the most vibrant workshops of the Renaissance, and taught artists who would go on to become some of the greatest painters of the period. Together with Florence’s Museo Nazionale del Bargello and Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi, the Gallery will present the first monographic Verrocchio exhibition.

EXHIBITION | Dialectical Materialism: Aspects of British Sculpture since the 1960s

Dialectical Materialism: Aspects of British Sculpture since the 1960s offers a glimpse into the shifting terrain of British sculpture over the last fifty years. Conceived by the esteemed art dealer and writer Karsten Schubert (1961-2019), the exhibition celebrates his lasting legacy and vision after his recent death. The exhibition begins with pieces from the 1960s by Anthony Caro, Barry Flanagan, and William Turnbull, whose work liberated sculpture from the plinth, allowing for a new freedom of space. Likewise, Alison Wilding, whose work Schubert showed at his first gallery exhibition in 1986, is renowned as one of today’s most respected sculptors for her use of diverse materials and scales.
