The Triumphal Return of Taddeo Gaddi's Maesta Conserved

Add to Calendar 27-03-2015 04-10-2015 15 The Triumphal Return of Taddeo Gaddi's Maesta Conserved After a two-year absence for conservation at the J. Paul Getty Museum, the New-York Historical Society's Virgin and Child Enthroned with Ten Saints: Maesta returns. Painted ca. 1334 by Taddeo Gaddi, the major disciple of Giotto, the jewel-like panel will take pride of place in a small focus exhibition highlighting its conservation treatment. Thomas Jefferson Bryan, an early connoisseur of Italian "primitives," i.e., painters before Raphael, bequeathed the Gaddi panel to New-York Historical in 1867, along with his entire collection. As New York City's first museum, New-York Historical wrote an early chapter in preserving the culture of the City, and Bryan played a pioneering role in its collecting history, amassing works by both European and American artists. Fittingly, Gaddi's painting will be displayed with a several other fourteenth- and early-fifteenth-century Italian panels from the Bryan Collection. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2015neweventinfo.cfm?id=142945 New-York Historical Society true DD/MM/YYYY
