A "landmark" exhibition featuring a wealth of Renaissance portraits has gone on display at The National Gallery in London.
Renaissance Faces: Van Eyck to Titian also features masterpieces by Raphael, Botticelli and Holbein and includes Giuseppe Arcimboldo's depiction of Emperor Rudolf II as Vertumnus, painted circa 1590.
The National Gallery describes the event as a "rare opportunity" to explore Renaissance portraiture in depth.
The exhibition features more than 60 paintings, as well as sculptures, drawings and medals, including Portrait of a Young Boy holding a Child's Drawing, by Giovanni Francesco Caroto.
Quinten Massys's An Old Woman (The Ugly Duchess) is one of a number of Renaissance paintings owned by The National Gallery. It is on display with loans from galleries in the UK, Europe and the US.
Renaissance Faces: Van Eyck to Titian runs until 18 January 2009.
