Raffaello, Parmigianino and Barocci

Metaphors of the Gaze
02/10/2015 - 24/01/2016
Musei Capitolini

The exhibition Raffaello Parmigianino Barocci. Metaphors of the Gaze compares the art of Francesco Mazzola, known as Parmigianino, and Federico Fiori, also known as Il Barocci, two artists who lived at different times, with the work of Raphael.

For different reasons, they are considered heirs of the great artist coming from Urbino; both lived in Rome, which influenced their artistic style and exposed them to Raphael's more experimental approach. These researches find a very good conceptual and aesthetic expression in graphics.

For this reason, the exhibition presents, not only pictures, etchings and light and shade effects, but also some paintings and some old reliefs. 

Part of the exhibition are guided tours and educational workshops for school groups and for general visitors.
