Madonnas and Miracles: National Gallery loans to Fitzwilliam Museum exhibition

Three paintings from the National Gallery Collection have been loaned to the Fitzwilliam Museum to form part of the new exhibition 'Madonnas and Miracles: The Holy Home in Renaissance Italy'. 

'Portrait of a Young Lady' (about 1500-1510) by Bartolomeo Veneto; 'The Birth of the Virgin' (about 1440) by the Master of the Osservanza; and 'Christ Crowned with Thorns' (about 1500-1505) probably by Pietro Perugino, will be on display as part of the Cambridge exhibition which runs until 4 June 2017.

The exhibition brings together a wealth of objects, including jewellery, ceramics, books, sculptures, and paintings, offering a vivid encounter with Renaissance spirituality and domesticity; and bringing a new appreciation of the relationship between the material and the divine.
