In Renaissance Rome, the facades of many prominent buildings were painted with spectacular narrative frescoes. Once part of the fabric of the city, only a few now remain. Using works from the Getty’s collection, including the celebrated drawings series "Early Life of Taddeo Zuccaro" in which murals play a central role, the exhibition explores this extraordinary Renaissance phenomenon. This exhibition complements Judy Baca: Hitting the Wall.

May 31 - September 4
