One of the most comprehensive shows on Sandro Botticelli ever staged in the United States is coming to the Minneapolis Institute of Art.

On Thursday, the museum announced “Botticelli and Renaissance Florence: Masterworks from the Uffizi,” which will run from Oct. 15 through Jan. 8. It features more than 45 loans from the renowned Uffizi Galleries in Florence, including paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, decorative arts and a selection of ancient Roman marble statues.

“The presentation of such rare objects of extraordinary quality alone is sure to inspire wonder and delight,” said Mia director and president Katie Luber in a news release. “Following the extended period in which the pandemic limited the nature of international curatorial collaboration, the opportunity to bring wonderful works of art from the Uffizi to Minneapolis is nothing short of incredible. What better moment to examine Botticelli and the Florentine Renaissance than next fall, as we seek the rebirth of culture, art and connection.”

Loans from the Uffizi will be interspersed with objects from Mia’s collection throughout the exhibition, including Benedetto da Rovezzano’s “Saint John the Baptist” sculptural bust displayed alongside Jacopo del Sellaio’s “Triumph of Mardocheus,” a panel painting from the Uffizi which depicts a similar terracotta bust.

Famous for his large-scale mythological and secular paintings, Botticelli was one of the most celebrated artists of the Italian Renaissance. He is known for his treatment of sacred subjects, which include altarpieces, devotional pictures and three major frescoes in the Sistine Chapel in Rome commissioned by Pope Sixtus IV.
