See the dazzling works of Spanish 15th-century genius, Bartolomé Bermejo
Little is known about the enigmatic Bermejo, but he was one of Spain’s most innovative and accomplished painters active in the second half of the 15th century.
This exhibition brings together six of Bermejo’s paintings that have never been seen outside of Spain, including the triptych of the ‘Madonna of Montserrat’ from the cathedral at Acqui Terme, Alessandria (Italy) and the ‘Piedad Desplà’ from Barcelona Cathedral.
In addition, our own magnificent ‘Saint Michael Triumphs over the Devil’, returns on display following its year-long conservation; unveiling the painting’s exquisite details and the extent of Bermejo’s artistry.
