A tale of two artists and brothers-in-law, ‘Mantegna and Bellini’ tells a story of art, family, rivalry, and personality.

Andrea Mantegna’s brilliant compositional innovation and Giovanni Bellini’s atmospheric, natural landscapes were groundbreaking – no one had seen anything like it before.

Following their respective careers in Padua and Venice, and Mantegna’s fame as court painter to the powerful Gonzaga family in nearby Mantua, ‘Mantegna and Bellini’ is the first-ever exhibition to explore the creative links between these artists.
