12:30pm: 'Fit for a King' tour: come luxuriate in the French decorative arts collection as I show you what life was like in 17th and 18th Century France. Expect lots of gold!
2:30pm: 'The Shimmer of Gold: Giovanni di Paolo in Renaissance Siena' Spotlight tour: Experience the Branchini Altarpiece of 1427. Presented together probably for the first time since its dispersal, the altarpiece will be displayed alongside works on panel and on parchment by Giovanni and his close collaborators and contemporaries. The exhibition, which features a number of important international loans, also offers insights into his technique of working with and on gold to create masterful luminous effects.
As always, get to the Museum earlier so you have enough time to park and take the tram up to the entrance. See you there! Visitor information HERE
