Girolamo dai Libri and Veronese Art of the Sixteenth Century

(Monday) (Sunday)

Girolamo dai Libri (Italian, 1474–1555) was the leading artist in the northern Italian city of Verona during the early sixteenth century, producing altarpieces and illuminated manuscripts for numerous churches in and around the city. Verona's location at a significant crossroads between northern Italy and northern Europe encouraged Girolamo dai Libri and the members of the vibrant Veronese school to synthesize various influences, fusing the sculptural, classicizing style of nearby Padua, the luminous sensibility of Venetian painting, and the meticulous attention to naturalistic detail inspired by northern European artists.

The focal point of this installation, comprised of works from the Museum's collection, is Girolamo's majestic altarpiece of the Madonna and Child with saints, on loan to the Robert Lehman Collection from the Department of European Paintings. Highlighting Girolamo's dual activities as a painter and illuminator, this altarpiece will be shown alongside manuscripts by Girolamo and his Veronese contemporaries, as well as drawings by this circle of artists.
