Monday, November 13, 2017   (0 Comments)

BOSTON, MA (November 2017) – The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum will be the sole venue for Fra Angelico: Heaven on Earth, opening Feb. 22 through May 28, 2018. The exhibition will explore renowned Renaissance painter Fra Angelico's talent for storytelling. For the first time ever, the four newly restored reliquaries – containers for holy relics – that were painted for the church of Santa Maria Novella in Florence between 1424 and 1434 will be reunited at the Gardner. Together they picture the life of the Virgin Mary and offer the opportunity to explore his talent for sacred tales.

Support for the Fra Angelico: Heaven on Earth exhibition is provided in part by the Robert Lehman Foundation and the Massachusetts Cultural Council, which receives funding from the State of Massachusetts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
