The MNAA, ”la Caixa” Banking Foundation and the BPI present Madonna. Treasures from the Vatican Museums. The exhibition features a selection of works from the famous collections of the Vatican Museums, particularly the extraordinary art gallery.


The show takes visitors on a chronological journey spanning nearly one thousand years, from late Antiquity to the modern age, taking the iconography of Our Lady as its central theme.


The works on show include paintings by “Primitive” Italian artists (Taddeo di Bartolo, Sano de Pietro, Fra Angelico) and great Renaissance and Baroque masters (Rafael, Pinturicchio, Salviati, Pietro da Cortona, Barocci), as well as outstanding tapestries and manuscripts from the Vatican Apostolic Library.
                                                                                                                               

The exhibition is the first fruit from the cultural sponsorship programme established by ”la Caixa” Banking Foundation and the BPI after the two institutions announced their intention to jointly promote social and cultural projects in Portugal over the coming years.
