Masterpieces of Italian Painting from Glasgow Museums at
the Santa Barbara Museum of Art through May 3rd. This
exhibition highlights the transformation of art, science,
theology, and culture over a 500 year period.
Noteworthy in this exhibition is The Annunciation (ca.
1490–95) by Sandro
Botticelli that depicts
the moment that the
angel Gabriel visits
the Virgin Mary to tell
her that she has been
divinely impregnated
and will bear the Christ
child.

that Botticelli has

The centerpiece of the first section is a large painting by Titian titled
Christ and the Adulteress (ca. 1508–10). The painting depicts the story in
which Christ was challenged by the Pharisees to condemn a woman caught
in the act of adultery. “This is one of the most famous Italian paintings in
the Glasgow’s collection, one of Titian’s great early masterpieces,” shared
Feinberg.
The museum does not own many works from this period according to
Feinberg, but “we were able to integrate them into the show because they
have context,” in the exhibition.
Another example of developing technique during this time is Virgin and
Child by Giovanni Bellini. According to Feinberg, Bellini was the first to
become proficient with oil paints, which is reflected in the skin tones and the
