Veronese in Murano

Frick Collection, New York

24 Oct 2017 - 25 Mar 2018

Two Venetian Renaissance Masterpieces Restored

The Frick Collection presents a focused exhibition on two important Renaissance paintings by the celebrated artist Paolo Veronese: St Jerome in the Wilderness and St Agatha Visited in Prison by St Peter. While the paintings are known to scholars, their remote location in a church in Murano, Venice, which is known today for its glassmaking studios, has made them difficult to study. St Jerome in the Wilderness has been exhibited outside the church only once, in 1939 – while St Agatha Visited in Prison by St Peter has not left the church since being installed in the early 19th century. These two rarely seen canvases now leave Italy for the first time since their creation over 450 years ago. The exhibition will provide a unique opportunity for an international audience to discover these two masterpieces in the Frick’s unique setting. Find out more about the ‘Veronese in Murano’ exhibition from the Frick Collection’s website.
