Revered in his own time as a ‘monarch’ of painting, Piero della Francesca (1411/13–1492) is acknowledged today as a founding figure of the Italian Renaissance. The Frick Collection presents the first monographic exhibition in the United States dedicated to the artist. It brings together seven works by Piero della Francesca, including six panels from the Saint’ Agostino altarpiece — the largest number from this masterwork ever reassembled. They are joined by the Virgin and Child Enthroned with Attendant Angels, his only intact altarpiece in this country. Piero della Francesca in America is organized by the Frick’s Andrew W. Mellon Fellow and guest curator Nathaniel Silver.
