Of Heaven and Earth: 500 Years of Italian Painting from Glasgow Museums
UNITED STATES
OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA  •  Oklahoma City Museum of Art  •  Ongoing
 

Organized into five chronological sections, Of Heaven and Earth includes paintings originating from the principal artistic centers of Italy—Rome, Milan, Bologna, Florence, Siena, Naples, and Venice—and  present the works of artists such as Giovanni Bellini, Sandro Botticelli, Domenichino, Francesco Guardi, Salvator Rosa, and Titian alongside those of lesser-known masters. Many of these works have been conserved specifically in anticipation of this tour. The exhibition highlights significant new research and discoveries relating to attribution, dates, provenance, infrared analysis, and the reconstruction of fragmented altarpieces.

The accompanying catalogue features essays on Glasgow’s collections and the museum’s Italian paintings by Guest Curator Peter Humfrey, an internationally renowned specialist in Italian art history recently retired from teaching at the University of St. Andrews.

After Oklahoma City, Of Heaven and Earth travels to Art Gallery of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada (13 December 2013–9 March 2014); Everson Museum of Art, Syracuse, NY (17 April–13 July 2014); Milwaukee Art Museum (1 October 2014–4 January 2015); and Santa Barbara Museum of Art (6 February 2015– 3 May 2015).
