Description: Illustrating one of the most celebrated Renaissance themes, Bartolo di Fredi's (c. 1330-1410) Adoration of the Magi will be reunited in this groundbreaking exhibition. The three known surviving panels of this Siense master's unrivaled altarpiece are considered by many to be among Bartolo's finest works. Composed of a monumental central panel depicting a tender visit of the Magi to the Christ Child, his Crucifixion and the mourning it brings, "Adoration of the Magi" by Bartolo di Fredi: A Masterpiece Reconstructed permits an in-depth study of this oft-depicted Christian narrative.
The three altarpiece panels will be on loan from the Pinacoteca of Siena, the Lindenau-Museum in Altenburg Germany, and the University of Virginia Art Museum, the first venue for the exhibition. At the Museum of Biblical Art, Bartolo's altarpiece will be displayed alongside a magnificent version of the Adoration of the Magi which he completed as a standalone work in c. 1390, on loan from The Robert Lehman Collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, as well as Bartolo's depiction of the Adoration of the Shepherds dating to c. 1374, on loan from The Cloisters. Both paintings will enhance the detailed examination of this master's grand altarpiece.
