    Background: MASTERPIECES OF ITALIAN ART GO ON PUBLIC SHOW AT BUCKINGHAM PALACE, IN LONDON, ON THURSDAY (NOVEMBER 26). THEY HAVE BEEN SELECTED FROM THE ROYAL COLLECTION, AND WILL BE DISPLAYED IN THE GALLERY OF QUEEN ELIZABETH'S LONDON RESIDENCE. IT IS THE THIRD ROYAL EXHIBITION TO BE HELD AT THE PALACE. THE PREVIOUS TWO WERE OVERWHELMING SUCCESSES.

    "A PORTRAIT OF A YOUNG MAN" WAS PAINTED BY BELLINI, THE OUTSTANDING 15TH CENTURY ARTIST. A MAGNIFICENT EXAMPLE OF 18TH CENTURY VENICE IS SHOWN IN "A REGATTA ON THE GRAND CANAL," BY CANALETTO. THE REGATTA CELEBRATES THE ANNUAL FEAST OF THE PURIFICATION OF THE VIRGIN. THE PICTURE WAS BOUGHT BY KING GEORGE III, WHO HAD A VORACIOUS APPETITE FOR ITALIAN ART.

    THE GREATEST OF ALL ROMANS IS FEATURED IN "THE TRIUMPH OF CAESAR: THE VASE-BEARERS." PAINTED BY ANDREA MANTEGNA, IT BRINGS OUT THE 15TH CENTURY ARTIST'S WONDERFUL IMAGINATION AND INSIGHT INTO POETRY. KING CHARLES I BOUGHT IT FOR THE ROYAL COLLECTION.

    ANOTHER WORK, BOUGHT BY KING CHARLES I IS "THE HOLY FAMILY WITH SAINT JEROME." IT IS AN EARLY 16TH CENTURY WORK BY CORREGGIO. "MINERVA" IS ANOTHER 16TH CENTURY WORK, THIS TIME BY FRANCESCO MAZZOLA.

    "THE ADORATION OF THE SHEPHERDS" REFLECTS A BIBLICAL SCENE, BUT THE LANDSCAPE IN THE BACKGROUND IS SAID TO BE AN ITALIAN SCENE. IT WAS PAINTED IN THE 16TH CENTURY BY JACOPO BASSANO.

    THE EXHIBITION IS NOT ALL PAINTINGS -- CAMEOS, CUTLERY, AND OTHER PRICELESS ORNAMENTS ARE ALSO FEATURED. EIGHT WORKS BY THE GREAT DA VINCI ARE ON SHOW -- ONE OF THEM IS "A MASQUERADER," AN INK AND CHALK SKETCH DONE IN HIS FINAL PERIOD.

    ANOTHER WORK BY BELLINI IS "SAINT ANTHONY ABBOT," A BRUSH DRAWING ORIGINALLY PAINTED TO HANG IN A VENICE CHURCH. FINALLY, A WORK BY RAPHAEL, THAT OTHER GREAT ARTIST OF THE DA VINCI ERA. IT IS ENTITLED "NUDE FIGURE FLEEING WITH AN AXE."
    THE EXHIBITION WILL STAY OPEN INDEFINITELY.
