This exhibition is no longer on view at the National Gallery.
Piero di Cosimo: The Poetry of Painting in Renaissance Florence brings together forty-four paintings representing all facets of the artist’s career, including altar- pieces that still belong to the churches for which they were created. It also reunites several of his poetic mythological scenes, often painted in pairs or in a series to adorn Florentine palaces, but long since scattered from their original homes. With works lent by museums, churches, and private collectors in Europe and the Americas, this is the first major exhibition devoted to Piero di Cosimo.
Organization: The exhibition is organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and the Galleria degli Uffizi, Superintendency of Cultural Heritage for the City and the Museums of Florence.
Sponsor: The exhibition is supported by Sally Engelhard Pingree and The Charles Engelhard Foundation. Additional funding is provided by The Exhibition Circle of the National Gallery of Art.
