From Filippo Lippi to Piero Della Francesca - Fra Carnevale and the Making of a Renaissance Master

Two cities—Florence and Urbino; a key moment in the history of Italian Renaissance art; 55 works by some of the greatest painters and sculptors, including Filippo Lippi, Domenico Veneziano, Piero della Francesca, and Luca della Robbia, as well as eccentric paintings by little-known masters; and the identification of a heretofore mysterious personality who practiced painting and sculpture and was associated with the celebrated court of Urbino: these are the ingredients of this jewel-like exhibition.
This is the story of an artist who trained in Florence, associated with a who’s who of Renaissance artists, became a Dominican friar, advised the ruler of his native Urbino on art and architecture, and painted some of the most fascinating works of the fifteenth century—and yet whose identity has long remained a mystery to scholars. "From Filippo Lippi to Piero della Francesca: Fra Carnevale and the Making of a Renaissance Master" centers on two celebrated paintings that were acquired from the Barberini Collection in Rome by The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, in the 1930s, and their enigmatic creator. It brings together nearly fifty major Renaissance works from thirty-three museums in Europe and the United States by such artists as Filippo Lippi, Domenico Veneziano, Luca della Robbia, Donatello, and Piero della Francesca, as well as all the paintings that can now be attributed to Fra Carnevale.
