Michelangelo | Sebastiano: A Meeting of Minds

Learn about the extraordinary artistic relationship between two great Renaissance masters, Sebastiano del Piombo and Michelangelo, from the 1510s through to the 1540s. Having met in Rome in 1511, where Michelangelo was finishing his decoration of the Sistine Chapel ceiling, the artists became friends and collaborated on several works. This exhibition focuses on two of these collaborations: the 'Pietà' for San Francesco in Viterbo (c.1512–16), an exceptional loan, and The Raising of Lazarus, painted for the Cathedral of Narbonne, one of the foundational works in the National Gallery Collection. Works that precede their meeting will also be on display, as well as examples of their extensive, intimate correspondence, providing behind-the-scenes insight into their personal and creative lives, their concerns and frustrations, and moments of glory.
