At the end of the 1520s, during the siege that brought to an end the last Florentine Republic, the painter Jacopo da Pontormo created one of his most moving and innovative altarpieces, the Visitation. Recent conservation has created the extraordinary opportunity for the work to travel for the first time from Carmignano (near Florence) to the United States. This exhibition presents Pontormo’s spectacular painting alongside its preparatory drawing and two exceptional portraits painted during the same tumultuous period. Curated by Davide Gasparotto.

Organized by the Gallerie degli Uffizi, the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Morgan Library & Museum.

This exhibition is made possible with generous support from Mr. and Mrs. J. Tomilson Hill, and the Foundation for Italian Art and Culture (FIAC).
