Two newly restored and rarely seen works by Venetian master coming to The Frick this fall

Paolo Veronese, Saint Jerome in the Wilderness. Oil on canvas, 91 x 57 1/4 in. Diocesi Patriarcato di Venezia
NEW YORK---This fall, The Frick Collection will present "Veronese in Murano: Two Venetian Renaissance Masterpieces Restored," a focused exhibition on two recently conserved and rarely seen paintings by the celebrated artist Paolo Veronese (1528–1588), "Saint Jerome in the Wilderness" and "Saint Peter Visiting Saint Agatha in Prison." While the paintings are known to scholars, their remote location in a church in Murano, an island in the lagoon of Venice, has made them difficult to study. The exhibition will provide a unique opportunity for an international audience to discover these two masterpieces in New York.

The Frick Collection: "Veronese in Murano: Two Venetian Renaissance Masterpieces Restored" (October 24, 2017 to March 11, 2018); 1 East 70th Street, New York, NY; (212)-288-0700;
