New exhibit on Italian Renaissance Art at the Met

"From Filippo Lippi to Piero della Francesca: Fra Carnevale and the Making of a Renaissance Master" will be on display in the Robert Lehman Wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art through May 1, 2005.

According to the Met's website, the exhibit's "ingredients" include:

Two cities -- Florence and Urbino; a key moment in the history of Italian Renaissance art; 55 works by some of the greatest painters and sculptors, including Filippo Lippi, Domenico Veneziano, Piero della Francesca, and Luca della Robbia, as well as eccentric paintings by little-known masters; and the identification of a heretofore mysterious personality who practiced painting and sculpture and was associated with the celebrated court of Urbino.
