PAINTINGS FROM SIENA : Ars Narrandi in Europe's Gothic Age

Guided visit (Fr/Dutch) of the exhibition + Italian evening at the University Foundation

BOZAR pays tribute to Siena and its magnificent picto¬rial tradition in collaboration with the prestigious Pinacoteca Nazionale di Siena and the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Rouen. Sienese artists developed their own style over time, evolving from the rigid patterns of late-Byzantine iconography to more narrative works of art. The ex¬hibition showcases sixty master¬pieces which bear testimony to a revolutionary form of art which, from the thirteenth century until the fifteenth century, took an in¬creasing interest in space and in exploration of human emotions and used brilliant, unusual col¬ours. The Sienese school inspired other arts centres in Italy and fi¬nally left its mark all over Europe. A unique opportunity to see these masterpieces in Brussels!
