A ratatouille of History, Museums' bits and Interesting Facts. A site for those who like the smell of Old Times.
January 14–March 30, 2014
“Through a special collaboration with the Gallerie dell’Accademia, Venice, and the Galleria Nazionale delle Marche, Urbino, The Metropolitan Museum of Art will host a focused presentation of the devotional paintings of Piero della Francesca, addressing Piero’s work for private devotion for the first time. The four works on view have never before been brought together; the exhibition, therefore, promises to make an important contribution to the study of this major figure of the Renaissance. It consists of: Saint Jerome and a Donor from the Gallerie dell’Accademia, Venice, Madonna and Child with two Angels (the Senigallia Madonna) from the Galleria Nazionale delle Marche, Urbino, Saint Jerome in a Landscape from the Gemäldegalerie, Berlin, and Madonna and Child from a private collection in Delaware.
The catalogue is made possible by The Christian Humann Foundation. Additional support is provided by Jane Beasley, in memory of John P. O’Neill.”
