Enjoy a fresh new Italian exhibit at the National Gallery of art, dubbed Sharing Images; Renaissance into Maoilica and Bronze Prints, going on now until August 5, 2018. The first exhibition of its kind in the United States, Sharing Images brings together some 90 objects to highlight the impact of Renaissance prints on maiolica and bronze plaquettes. Arranged chronologically, this exhibition is inspired by the aquisition of the William A. Clark maiolica collection from the corcoran gallery of art and draws largely on the gallery's newly expanded holdings of early Italian prints. Featured artists include Andrea Mantegna, Antonio del Pollaiuolo, Raphael, Michelangelo, Parmigianino, and German artist Albreht Durer.
