Maíno’s Adorations: Heaven on Earth
Experience two outstanding masterpieces by Spanish painter Maíno, on display in the UK for the first time
‘Maíno’s Adorations: Heaven on Earth’ presents two remarkable loans from the Museo del Prado, Madrid by the Spanish painter Fray Juan Bautista Maíno (1581–1649).
Born in Pastrana in Castile, Maíno travelled to Rome at the beginning of the 17th century and was among the first Spanish painters to witness Caravaggio’s revolutionary naturalism.
On display concurrently with the Beyond Caravaggio exhibition, Maíno’s two vast altarpieces, ‘The Adoration of the Shepherds’ and ‘The Adoration of the Kings’, illustrate Caravaggio’s extended influence across Europe.
