Building the Picture: Architecture in Italian Renaissance PaintingThe architecture in Italian Renaissance painting is explored through works by 14th, 15th and 16th century artists including Duccio, Botticelli and Crivelli at this exhibition in the Sunley Room of the National Gallery. Building the Picture also explores the way architecture was used to frame sitters in figurative paintings and depict biblical stories in paintings like Duccio's 1307/8-11 work, 'The Annunciation', the opening scene on the front of his greatest work, the double-sided 'Maesta' altarpiece.
