The patronage of the Medici and Della Rovere family produced some of the world’s greatest art. Artists such as Michelangelo, Raphael, Botticelli, and Perugino are but a few who enjoyed the largesse of these two extraordinary families. Much of the art produced for or collected by the families is still contained within two of the world’s most important museums – the Uffizi Galleries and the Vatican Museums. This lecture will survey some of those extraordinary artists whose genius is on display in both of the collections.
