Christ and the Penitents, n.d. oil on canvas
Gift of John and Johanna Bass


The focus of this important exhibition is Northern Europe during the Renaissance and Baroque periods (15th to 17th centuries), and the pieces on view represent a range of media—including oil on canvas, tempera on panel, enamel on porcelain and textiles—as well as a compelling array of subjects. The Lowe Art Museum and the Bass Museum of Art are the only two professional art institutions in greater Miami to house extensive collections of European Old Master paintings, sculptures, and decorative art objects. The Lowe is hosting a selection of outstanding works from the Bass’ permanent selection.
