01:00 PM–02:00 PM
Renaissance Art Walk-In Tour

This tour on Renaissance art explores the development of religious and secular art in the 15th and 16th centuries.

The Walters' collection of European Renaissance art features one of the most significant holdings of Italian paintings in the Americas, many of which were acquired by Henry Walters with the Massarenti Collection (a previously unprecedented purchase of the contents of an Italian villa). This important collection includes not only paintings but also sculpture, furniture, ceramics, metalwork, jewelry, arms and armor, and locks and keys. The breadth of the Walters’ collection offers a comprehensive display of the arts during this artistically fertile period. The best-known works include Veronese’s Portrait Of Countess Livia da Porto Thiene and her Daughter Porzia, Bernini's Risen Christ, Tiepolo’s Scipio Africanus Freeing Massiva, and The Ideal City attributed to Fra Carnavale.

This tour is part of our free, docent-led, walk-in tours. No reservations are required; just walk in and enjoy.
