Annibale Carracci. Els frescos de la capella Herrera
Annibale Carracci: The frescoes from the Herrera Chapel

8 July – 9 October 2022

This focus exhibition reunites Annibale Carracci’s frescoes from the Herrera chapel of San Giacomo degli Spagnuoli, the Spanish Church in Rome, which were transferred to canvas in the nineteenth century and split between Madrid and Barcelona. The decoration of the chapel was Annibale’s last major project, and the frescoes are shown alongside eleven of his preparatory drawings for the scheme, all on loan from the Royal Collection.
