About

Join Caroline Smith and learn more about Bermejo's paintings.

This exhibition brings together seven of his rare works, six of which have never been seen in the UK. Explore how Bermejo drew inspiration from Netherlandish painting, using illusionistic effects and a rich colour palette, to become one of the greatest artists of the Spanish Renaissance.

At the heart of the exhibition is Saint Michael Triumphs over the Devil, widely considered the most important early Spanish painting in Britain. Its technical skill and excellent state of preservation are even clearer following its recent year-long conservation treatment.

This session will be delivered in spoken English with British Sign Language interpretation.
