Drones in Castile: Filming Berruguete’s Masterpieces

Go behind the scenes with the National Gallery of Art as our filmmakers pilot a camera drone inside three Spanish churches, capturing unparalleled views of artist Alonso Berruguete’s masterpieces. Get an aerial view of Berruguete’s haunting marble effigy of Cardinal Juan Pardo de Tavera in Toledo and soar up the towering altarpieces from the Colegio Arzobispo Fonseca in Salamanca and Nuestra Señora de la Mejorada (now at the Museo Nacional de Escultura in Valladolid). This footage was produced for the Gallery’s film accompanying the exhibition Alonso Berruguete: First Sculptor of Renaissance Spain.
