Devotion by Design: Italian Altarpieces at National Gallery

Free (cos no borrows). Which is good. Before the Leonardo madness a concise logical informative show. Especially good is being able to see the backs of the altarpieces, there is simple rough craftsman's beauty to their rears. Also to the modern eye the scraps of liberated paintings are more beautiful than the whole caboodle. Short on drop dead gorgeous masterpieces there are a few nice things that you wouldn't notice among the brilliance of the main collection upstairs.
