Press Event: An Antiquity of Imagination: Tullio Lombardo and Venetian High Renaissance Sculpture

In the first exhibition dedicated to Venetian Renaissance sculptor Tullio Lombardo (c. 1455–1532), his romantic approach to portraiture is revealed in four of his greatest marble carvings, which are joined by eight related works from his closest circle. On view at the National Gallery of Art's Italian galleries in the West Building from July 4 through November 1, 2009, 'An Antiquity of Imagination: Tullio Lombardo and Venetian High Renaissance Sculpture' celebrates the artist's pioneering talent.
