Celebrating the Venetian artist Tintoretto at five hundred
Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman and Designer is a far more ambitious production than its title would ever suggest.
With its tenderly human tableaux painted on a golden background, the St. John Altarpiece, attributed to Francescuccio Ghissi (active 1359–1374), was a gem of Italian art at the dawn of the Renaissance. But at some point in the nineteenth or early twentieth century, the altarpiece was sawn apart to separate its nine constituent panels.
