Courtauld: Renaissance Art

The second batch of the pictures I tool at the Courtauld; I called it ‘Renaissance’, but it will be very stretched a category; basically, everything that was hanging on the walls before I entered ‘modern’ rooms. The poster above is of the exhibition of young Durer; I’ve been there too, but didn’t take any pictures, they would be totally crap anyway (=the drawings were small, and the light, dark).

Below is what I did manage to take the pictures of:

Mariotto Albertinelli – The Creation and Fall of Man (c.1515)


Follower of Andrea del Verocchio – Madonna and Child (c.1470s)



After Andrea del Verrocchio – Madonna and Child


Dish of the crucifixion of Christ between two thieves – Urbino, Fontano Workshop, c.1550


Lustred dish (piatto da pompa) – Woman teaching boy to read



Lucas Cranach the Elder – Adam and Eve (1526)



Hans Mielich – Portait of Anna Reitmor (c.1540)



Portrait of Man (German or Italian master, c1530s)





Paramigianino – The Rest on the Flight into Egypt (c.1524)


Paramigianino – Madonna and Child (c.1524)




Peter Paul Rubens – The Death of Achilles (c.1630)





Peter Paul Rubens – The Family of Jan Brueghel the Elder (c.1630)





Peter Paul Rubens – Landscape by Moonlight (c.1630)

I was a bit surprised to find the ‘landscape’ by Rubens; I thought he was always painting his voluptuous bodies; as a landscape painter, he was apparently interested in the same things many other of colleagues would do, too: reflections on water surfaces and interplay of cloud in the sky. His starts are pretty ridiculous, though.




Pieter Bruegel the Elder – Landscape with the Flight into Egypt (c.1563)





Hans Eworth – Allegorical Portrait of Sir John Luttrell (1550)
