CANCELLED! Piero della Francesca al Frick Collection

Piero della Francesca in America
12 Febbraio 2013 al 19 Maggio 2013

Venerato a suo tempo come un "monarca" della pittura, Piero della Francesca (1411/[masked]) è riconosciuto oggi come una figura fondante del Rinascimento italiano. Frick Collection presenta la prima mostra monografica negli Stati Uniti, dell'artista, e riunisce sette opere, tra cui sei pannelli dalla pala d'altare di Sant'Agostino. A queste si aggiungono la Madonna col Bambino in trono e quattro angeli, l’unica pala d'altare di Piero della Francesca intatta.

Riunendo sette dipinti che Piero ha creato nella sua città natale di Borgo San Sepolcro, la mostra considera l'artista d'avanguardia nel contesto della sua città natale. Tra le opere più importanti di Piero è la pala d'altare di Sant'Agostino [masked]), un grande polittico che sovrastava l'altare maggiore della chiesa locale agostiniana che è stato smontato intorno al 1555. Una delle figure intere di questa opera, Sant'Agostino dal Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga di Lisbona, fa il suo debutto in America con questa presentazione. Quest’ultima è riunita per la prima volta con la sua controparte, San Giovanni Evangelista, parte della collezione del Frick Museum insieme ai piccoli pannelli dalla pala d'altare sopravvissuti: Santa Apollonia dalla Galleria Nazionale d'Arte, e la Frick San Leonardo, Santa Monica (?) , e la Crocifissione.

Completano il gruppo è la Vergine col Bambino in trono e quattro angeli dal Sterling e Francine Clark Art Institute. Questa pala d'altare, raramente prestata dal suo istituto di appartenenza, è stato presentata a New York solo una volta quando la Clark ha aperto al pubblico quasi sessanta anni fa. Rimosso dalla città natale dell'artista, quasi duecento anni fa, è tornato, con questa mostra, nel contesto dell'opera di Piero della Francesca.

Questa mostra è stata designata come uno degli eventi ufficiali dell'Anno Italiano di Cultura 2013

Revered in his own time as a "monarch" of painting, Piero della Francesca (1411/13–1492) is acknowledged today as a founding figure of the Italian Renaissance. The Frick Collection is presenting the first monographic exhibition in the United States on the artist, bringing together seven works, including six panels from the Sant’Agostino altarpiece — the largest number from this masterwork ever reassembled for display. These are joined by the Virgin and Child Enthroned with Four Angels, Piero's only intact altarpiece in this country.
By bringing together seven paintings that Piero made in his hometown of Borgo San Sepolcro, this exhibition considers this pioneering artist in the context of his native city. Among Piero's major works is the Sant’Agostino altarpiece (1454–69), a large polyptych that towered over the high altar of the local Augustinian church and was disassembled around 1555. One of the full-length figures from this work, Saint Augustine from the Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga in Lisbon, makes its debut in America with this presentation. It is reunited for the first time with its companion, the Frick’s Saint John the Evangelist, and with the surviving small-scale panels from the altarpiece: Saint Apollonia from the National Gallery of Art, and the Frick’s Saint Leonard (?), Saint Monica, and The Crucifixion.

Completing the group is Piero’s Virgin and Child Enthroned with Four Angels from the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute. This altarpiece, rarely lent by its home institution, has been presented in New York only once since the Clark opened to the public nearly sixty years ago. Removed from the artist’s native city nearly two hundred years ago, it is returned, with this exhibition, to the context of Piero’s oeuvre.

This exhibition has been designated as one of the official events of the Italian Year of Culture 2013.

    Stefano, How can you possibly cancel this meetup on a holiday only 24 hours before! i have planned my whole day around this including purchasing a theatre ticket in the afternoon and now my entire Easter Sunday is screwed up because of this cancellation. I emailed you earlier this week with an inquiry and you did not even bother to respond. I am very disappointed and frankly quite annoyed at this inconsideration.

      Next time I will try to get sick a couple of days before the event so I won't "screwed up" your schedule. Thanks for your comment and for your concern
