– Featuring 55 spectacular selections from the permanent collection of the National Galleries of Scotland, “Botticelli to Braque” presents the extraordinary opportunity to view masterpieces spanning 400 years of artistic production, from the Renaissance to the early 20th century, many of which have never before been displayed in the United States, most notably Sandro Botticelli’s, “Virgin Adoring the Sleeping Christ Child,” (1490). Other outstanding examples included in the installation are important works not only by old master Botticelli and Modernist pioneer Georges Braque but also career defining pieces by Pierre Bonnard, Paul Cézanne, Frederic Church, Paul Gauguin, Fernand Leger, Pablo Picasso, Rembrandt van Rijn, Georges Seurat, John Singer Sargent, Titian, Diego Velázquez, Johannes Vermer and Eduard Vuillard.

Renaissance highlights include Titian’s, “Venus Rising From the Sea,” (1520-25), Rembrandt’s, “A Woman in Bed,” (1640s) and Vermeer’s, “Christ in the House of Martha and Mary,” (1654-55). Outstanding modern works include not only Braque’s revolutionary, “The Candlestick,” (1911), the first Cubist piece to include lettering, but also Gauguin’s, “Three Tahitians,” (1899), Cézanne’s, “The Big Trees,” (1904), Picasso’s, “Guitar, Gas-Jet and Bottle” (1913) and particularly Leger’s, “Woman and Still Life” (1921), perhaps the artist’s most perfect representation of the his unique vision of the human form as retooled by the Machine Age.
