Giovanni Bellini and Andrea Mantegna were not only remarkable contemporary painters, they were also ‘brothers-in-law’, as Mantegna was married to Bellini’s sister. Both men dominated their respective cities, Bellini in Venice, Mantegna in Mantua.

In recent times no exhibition has ever explored this relationship so ‘Hats Off’ to the National Gallery for this opportunity. Major loans have been secured from all over the world and who better to cover this association than Paula Nuttall, one of our leading experts on the Italian renaissance.

Two morning lectures held at the Linnaean Society in Piccadilly will be followed by an afternoon visit to the National Gallery’s exhibition with timed entry. £74; Art Fund Members £67;  NG Friends £59

  • Included: Morning coffee, two lectures, timed entry to the exhibition
  • Not included: Travel to/from London; lunch
