Member Preview & Happy Hour: Flesh & Blood

Oct 16 2019

Seattle Art Museum

Entire Building


All SAM members are invited to the preview of Flesh and Blood: Italian Masterpieces from the Capodimonte Museum. This exhibition offers a rare opportunity to experience the fierce beauty of art from the 16th and 17th centuries. Renowned Renaissance artists such as Titian and Raphael join Baroque masters including Artemisia Gentileschi, Jusepe de Ribera, Guido Reni, and Bernardo Cavallino to reveal the aspirations and limitations of the human body and the many ways it expresses love and devotion, physical labor, and tragic suffering.

Be the first to see these masterpieces never before seen in Seattle.
