Piero della Francesca: Personal Encounters
UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  Metropolitan Museum of Art  •  14 January - 30 March 2014
 

Piero della Francesca  (1411/13–1492) was revered in his own time as a “monarch” of painting. Yet by the end of the sixteenth century his achievements had sunk into obscurity.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art hosts a focused presentation on the private devotional paintings of Renaissance painter Piero della Francesca. The four works on view consist of the following paintings: 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 Gemaldegalerie, Berlin; and Madonna and Child from a private collection in New York.

The exhibition is organized by Keith Christiansen, John Pope-Hennessy Chairman of the Department of European Paintings, and Andrea Bayer, Curator of European Paintings, at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The exhibition is accompanied by a brief catalogue with essays written by Keith Christiansen.
