This winter the Walters presents a new view of the Italian Renaissance. See the work of one of the most original and innovative painters in fifteenth-century Italy, Carlo Crivelli of Venice. This intimate exhibition showcases his luminous paintings, with their lavish use of gold, suggesting the materiality of goldsmiths’ work and luxury textiles.

New this winter is an exquisite exhibition that explores the story of Madame de Pompadour, the influential mistress of King Louis XV of France, best remembered as an enthusiastic patron of the arts. Less well known are the works of art she made and collected. On view here for the first time are selections from the Suite of Prints, an extremely rare first-edition set of etchings created by the royal mistress in the 1750s and purchased by Museum founder Henry Walters from a Parisian book dealer in 1895.
