Exhibition @ The National Gallery
Fedrico Barocci, Madonna del Popolo national gallery
Ferico Barocci's 'Madonna del Popolo'
The Italian Renaissance painter, Federico Barocci, is one of the 16th century's most celebrated artists. As part of the Counter Reformation, much of his work focussed on religious imagery, such as his famous Madonna del Popolo.

Barocci did studies in the human form, lighting, colour, and perspective which made for vividly detailed scenes with harmonious composition and sensitive depictions of the human form.

As a perfectionist, Barocci planned his masterpieces very carefully, doing extensive studies on his subject and medium before starting. He was inspired by the world around him, so much of his work is highly relatable.

An exhibition at the National Gallery will showcase some of his greatest works, including fourteen spectacular altarpieces like Entombment and Last Supper.

The exhibit will be open to the public from the 27th February until the 19th May 2013. The opening times are 10am-6pm, and it remains open until 9pm on Fridays. Tickets are 13.20 for adults, 12.10 for seniors, and 6 for students & under 18s.
