Fra Angelico- Heaven on Earth
February 22 @ 11:00 am - May 20 @ 5:00 pm EST
The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum will be the sole venue for Fra Angelico: Heaven on Earth, opening Feb. 22 through May 20, 2018. The exhibition will explore renowned Renaissance painter Fra Angelico’s talent for storytelling. Heaven on Earth brings together choice examples of his narrative art, including four newly restored reliquaries – containers for holy relics that were painted for the church of Santa Maria Novella in Florence between 1424 and 1434 – that 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.
