Robin Simon's Daily Mail weekly choice

‘Renaissance Faces’
National Gallery, London
Until 18 January 2009
Admission charge

Stunning array of masterpieces. Sculptures, paintings and drawings, including works by Van Eyck, Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, Dürer, Memling and Pontormo. The marble bust of Niccolo Strozzi by Mino da Fiesole is a work of cruel realism and almost steals the show from Titian’s penetrating portrait of Pope Paul III.
