Upcoming Exhibition: Maíno in London

2016-08-MainoMaíno’s Adorations. Heaven on Earth

National Gallery, London
28 September 2016 – 29 January 2017

For the duration of the National Gallery’s Beyond Caravaggio exhibition the Museo Nacional del Prado has lent the National Gallery two of its masterpieces by Fray Juan Bautista Maíno (1581-1649) for a display in Room 1. Both paintings — The Adoration of the Shepherds and The Adoration of the Kings — were painted between 1612 and 1614, after the artist’s return from Italy, as part of the high altar of the Dominican church of San Pedro Martír in Toledo. Not only do they display Maíno’s Caravaggesque naturalism, which he had seen at first hand in Rome, but they also combine that with the classicising style of Anibale Caracci and Guido Reni, both of whom Maíno new personally.
