Bartolo di Frediís Adoration of the Magi
A Masterpiece Reconstructed Guest Curator, Exhibition, University of Virginia Art Museum,
Spring 2012
Visit >

The exhibition reunited the surviving components of a late medieval Sienese altarpiece that was arguably one of the greatest work of the painter Bartolo di Fredi (ca. 1330-1410): the main panel, which has remained in Siena since its completion around 1380, and portions of the predella from the Lindenau-Museum in Altenburg, Germany, and from University of Virginia Art Museum. The exhibition traveled to the Museum of Biblical History in New York.
