Renaissance Master Carlo Crivelli on Display at Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

Carlo Crivelli's Saint George Slaying the Dragon

Carlo Crivelli’s Saint George Slaying the Dragon

When: October 22, 2015 – January 25, 2016

Where: Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum — 25 Evans Way, Boston MA

Ornament and Illusion is the first monographic exhibition dedicated to Renaissance painter Carlo Crivelli in the United States. The Gardner’s newly conserved Saint George Slaying the Dragon is the touchstone for a two-part installation. The first reunites four of six surviving panels from Crivelli’s Porto San Giorgio altarpiece, of which the Gardner painting is a fragment. The second features 20 of Crivelli’s most important works from Europe and the U.S. Together, they will introduce visitors to the artist’s repertoire of dazzling pictorial effects, and refine each encounter with his bravura illusionism.
