Bartholomeus Spranger

Splendor and Eroticism in Imperial Prague

November 4, 2014–February 1, 2015

Accompanied by a catalogue

The first major exhibition devoted to Bartholomeus Spranger (1546–1611), a fascinating artist who served a cardinal, a pope, and two Holy Roman Emperors, this exhibition will examine Spranger's remarkable career through a selection of his rare paintings, drawings, and etchings, most of which will be on loan from international museums and private collections. Spranger emerged as one of the most prominent artists at the court of Rudolf II in Prague and the most significant Northern Mannerist artist of his generation. Adding a unique dimension to the exhibition will be works by artists who helped shape Spranger's artistic horizon.
