An interview with painter Euan Uglow is presented concerning the artworks of Andrea Mantegna. When asked about dimensionality of the works of Mantegna, Uglow tells that the 3-dimensional style reveals a finished comprehension of what Mantegna is attempting to paint. When asked about "Death of the Virgin," Uglow claims that the painting is the main attraction of the exhibition due to its combination of internal and external beauty. Other paintings of Mantegna shown in the exhibit include "Descent into Limbo," and "St. Sebastian."
