Gallery A: Paintings 1250-1600

This part of the Gallery A display spans from the Middle Ages to the High Renaissance and includes paintings dating from the 13th to the 16th centuries. It encompasses works from all over Europe; from Germany and France, as well as from Italy and the Netherlands. Some paintings are grouped thematically under the key categories for this period, such as altarpieces, portraits and small-scale devotional works. Of particular interest are the 16th-century Venetian paintings representing musical subjects and a selection of Renaissance works from the workshop of the Florentine painter Sandro Botticelli.
