Ghiberti's Gates of Paradise on display at the Met

"The Gates of Paradise: Lorenzo Ghiberti's Renaissance Masterpiece" will be on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art through January 13.

After more than 25 years, the conservation of Lorenzo Ghiberti's doors for the Baptistery in Florence, called the Gates of Paradise, is nearing completion. This exhibition provides the American public with an unprecedented opportunity to see three of the doors' famous narrative reliefs, as well as four figural sections from their opulent surrounding frames, before they are permanently installed in the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo.
