Revealing the Early Renaissance: Stories and Secrets in Florentine Art

March 16 – June 16, 2013

The exhibition comprises more than 90 key pieces from the first half of the 14th century, including Giotto’s five-panel Peruzzi Altarpiece and his Madonna of San Giorgio alla Costa, two painted manuscripts of Dante’s Divine Comedy, and Bernardo Daddi’s Virgin Mary with Saints Thomas Aquinas and Paul.

Revealing the Early Renaissance includes manuscripts that have never left Florence before and that are very rarely on view in the city where they were created. These monumental works of art, evocative of painting in three dimensions, have spent most of their lives closed and thus survive in pristine condition. Their painted pages serve as a magnificent window on 14th-century Florence. The exhibition also features an interactive map with touch screen that will allow visitors to explore the places where Renaissance Florence intersects with the Florence of today.

Revealing the Early Renaissance: Stories and Secrets in Florentine Art is co-organized by the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Art Gallery of Ontario.
