Italian Renaissance Drawings: A Dialogue with China

Italian Renaissance Drawings: A Dialogue with China
#Exhibitions

The collaboration between the British Museum, one of the world’s most important museums, and M WOODS, Chinese institution operating in the non-profit sector, offers an occasion to introduce the Chinese public to the modus operandi of the great artists of the Italian Renaissance who influenced whole generations of artists around the world. The exhibition, curated by Sarah Vowles and Victor Wang, includes a vast number of works from the greatest artists of the Renaissance from the world famous collection of the British Museum. The drawings on display, fundamental instruments for the planning and reflection of Italian artists between 1400 and 1500, offer the Chinese public a unique opportunity to follow the creative process and appreciate the aesthetic of Renaissance Masters. Drawings by Raphael, Titian, Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci allow the public to immediately understand the importance of the innovations introduced to the world of art. With a trans-cultural perspective, the exhibition also offers a reflection on the possible development of numerous “Renaissances” beyond the borders of Italy but thanks to its innovations.
