Piero della Francesca (Tuscany ca. 1412–1492 Tuscany), Saint Jerome and a Supplicant, Ca. 1460–64 (?). Tempera and oil on wood, 19 ½ x 16 ½ in. (49.4 x 42 cm). Gallerie dell’Accademia, Venice.


NEW YORK, NY.- Through a special collaboration with the Gallerie dell'Accademia, Venice, and the Galleria Nazionale delle Marche, Urbino, The Metropolitan Museum of Art is hosting a focused presentation on the devotional paintings of Piero della Francesca, addressing Piero’s work for private devotion for the first time. The four works on view have never before been brought together; the exhibition, therefore, makes an important contribution to the study of this major figure of the Renaissance.

Piero della Francesca: Personal Encounters features the following paintings: Saint Jerome and a Supplicant (ca.1460–64) from the Gallerie dell'Accademia, Venice; Saint Jerome in the Wilderness (dated 1450) from the Gemäldegalerie, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin; Madonna and Child with Two Angels (ca. 1464–74?), also known as the “Senigallia Madonna,” from the Galleria Nazionale delle Marche, Palazzo Ducale, Urbino; and Madonna and Child (ca. 1439–40) from the Alana Collection, Delaware.

The loan of the Madonna di Senigallia is by arrangement with the Ministero dei Beni e delle Attività Culturali e del Turismo and the Italian Carabinieri Command (CCTPC), working together with la Soprintendenza per i Beni Storici Artistici ed Etnoantropologici delle Marche – Urbino, as part of 2013 – Italian Year of Culture in the United States.

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 made possible by the Foundation for Italian Art & Culture (FIAC). It was organized by The Metropolitan Museum of Art in collaboration with FIAC, in celebration of the opening of the New European Paintings Galleries, 1250-1800.

Piero della Francesca: Personal Encounters is accompanied by a brief catalogue with essays written by Keith Christiansen. It is published by The Metropolitan Museum of Art and distributed by Yale University Press, and is available for sale in the Museum’s book shops (paperback, $19.95).
