Andrea Mantegna's Adoration of the Magi and its Ming connection

Thursday 4 December 2014, 13.30
BP Lecture Theatre
Free, booking essential

Andrea Mantegna’s painting of the Adoration of the Magi features a bowl confirmed to be from the imperial factory at Jingdezhen, made in the Yongle period (1403–1424). Ming porcelain did appear in Europe in the early 15th century but it was very rare – perhaps Mantegna’s patron owned an example. Caroline Campbell, Curator of Italian paintings before 1500, National Gallery, London, discusses the painting and how it is a window on a world of extraordinary connections.

Please arrive punctually to guarantee admission.
