Mantegna and Bellini

Until 27 January 2019

Location: Sainsbury Wing

A tale of two artists and brothers-in-law, ‘Mantegna and Bellini’ tells a story of art, family, rivalry, and personality.

Andrea Mantegna’s brilliant compositional innovation and Giovanni Bellini’s atmospheric, natural landscapes were groundbreaking – no one had seen anything like it before.

Following their respective careers in Padua and Venice, and Mantegna’s fame as court painter to the powerful Gonzaga family in nearby Mantua, ‘Mantegna and Bellini’ is the first-ever exhibition to explore the creative links between these artists.

It is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see in London rare loans of paintings and drawings from around the world by two of the most influential artists of the Renaissance.

Exhibition organised by the National Gallery and the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin in collaboration with the British Museum

Win a trip to Mantua, Italy

To celebrate the Mantegna and Bellini exhibition, the Municipality of Mantua is offering the chance to win a trip for two to Mantua, Italy, to visit the key sites where Andrea Mantegna lived and worked.

Mantua, named Italian City of Culture in 2016, was home to Andrea Mantegna who designed and built his own house there in 1476. Its unusual structure, a square shape with central circular courtyard, is reminiscent of a Roman house.

Palazzo Ducale in Mantua, built between 14th and 17th-century, served as the royal residence for the Gonzaga family. Its Camera degli Sposi (The Wedding Room) is decorated with magnificent frescoes by Mantegna.

The prize
The winner will receive a trip voucher for two people, which includes:
  • A two-night stay in a three-star hotel in Mantua
  • Contribution to flights from London to Verona, to the value of €250
  • Transfers from Verona airport to Mantua
  • Admission to Andrea Mantegna's house
  • Admission to Camera degli Sposi in the Palazzo Ducale
Alongside this trip to Mantua, the winner will also receive:
  • Two tickets to the Mantegna and Bellini exhibition
  • The exhibition catalogue
  • A National Gallery tote bag

The prize draw is live on 29th October 2018, and closes on 2nd December 2018 at 11.59pm GMT.  A winner will be selected on 3rd December 2018.
