On Thursday, December 11, 2014, His Imperial Highness Crown Prince Naruhito of Japan arrived at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum (TMAM) to view the exhibition, Arte a Firenze da Botticelli a Bronzino: Verso una Maniera Moderna.

According to the official website for the TMAM the exhibition:

“…trace[s] the development of Florentine art from the 15th to the 16th century through works from the collection of the world-famed Uffizi Gallery, Florence’s oldest art museum, founded to house the art collections of the Medici family.

The Uffizi Gallery is renowned for its excellent collection of works by Sandro Botticelli, one of the greatest painters of the Italian Renaissance. Through paintings by Botticelli—including his famed Pallas and the Centaur—and works by Andrea del Sarto, Rosso Fiorentino, Agnolo Bronzino, and other leading figures of 16th-century Florentine art, some 80 pieces in all, this exhibition will convey the essence of the astonishingly rich and varied Florentine Renaissance.”

Arte a Firenze da Botticelli a Bronzino: Verso una Maniera Moderna will be open to the public until December 14, 2014.
