Reuniting a Masterpiece
DAVID STEEL, CURATOR OF EUROPEAN ART, NORTH CAROLINA MUSEUM OF ART
For more than 20 years, David Steel has been on a quest: to bring together all of the nine panels that originally formed an altarpiece by the 14th-century artist Francescuccio Ghissi. Eight of the panels are in museum collections, including the Portland Art Museum, but the final panel has never been located. This led Steel to propose a radical solution: Why not re-create the missing panel? Come hear more about the journey to reunite this incredible work of art.Purchase tickets
