Renaissance and Baroque Painting and Sculpture from the Bass Museum of Art Collection Now on View

The Bass Museum presents new installations of paintings and sculptures from the permanent collection, installed in two pristine galleries on the first level. The first exhibition showcases The Sacred and Sublime: Renaissance and Baroque Art from the Collection, that highlights important examples of Northern European Renaissance and Baroque art. Works on view span three centuries and include religious paintings by Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640), Gerard Seghers (1591-1651) and Cornelis Cornelisz van Haarlem (1562-1638). Also see the museum’s 16th century tapestry masterpiece The Salute before the Tournament, a prime example of King Henry’s favorite artistic medium that was purchased by J. Pierpont Morgan in the early twentieth- century before it came into John Bass’s collection.
The South Gallery is the newest addition to the Bass galleries. Overlooking Collins park, this intimate space showcases Reflections of the Renaissance and Antiquity, that includes works such as Benjamin West’s Anne, Countess of Northampton, and Her Daughter and Eduard Veith’s The Holy Family (Rest on the Flight into Egypt) which are direct references to Italian Renaissance compositions. Also on view are works by artists such as John Hoppner, Thomas Barker and Paul Manship that celebrate the lasting influence of the Italian Renaissance.
Both installations are curated by Ruth Grim, Curator of Collections
