Piero della Francesca at the Met
Four paintings (three from European institutions and one from a private collection in New York) created by Piero della Francesca for private devotion will be shown together for the first time: St. Jerome and a Donor; Madonna and Child with Two Angels; Saint Jerome in a Landscape; and Madonna and Child. The exhibition follows upon the Frick Collection's popular showing this year of seven of the eight works by the master known to exist in the UnitedStates.
