Spanish Sculpture from the 14th to the 18th Century
This exhibition, which presents a selected sample of the wonderful sculpture collection of the National Museum of Sculpture (Museo Nacional de Escultura) from Valladolid, takes a stroll through the centuries of the heyday of Spanish sculpture.
It affords an insight into a carefully selected range of the biggest names within sculpture of that era: the pioneers that brought the beginnings of Flemish realism and the Italian Renaissance to Castile – Alonso Berruguete belongs among them –, and the foreigners, who like Juan de Juni, settled in this territory ... In Spain, which was spurred on by the great Imperial drive on its conquering trips to Flanders, Italy and the New World, there is practically no end in sight to the continuous exchange of artists, techniques and works. National Gallery of Slovenia, Ljubljana until January the 6th 2013.
