The Met hosts major exhibition of the work of Fra Angelico

The Fra Angelico exhibit will be on display in the Robert Lehman Wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art through January 29.

"This first major exhibition of Fra Angelico's work since the quincentenary exhibition of 1955 in Florence -- and the first ever in the U.S. -- reunites approximately 75 paintings, drawings, and manuscript illuminations covering all periods of the artist's career, from ca. 1410 to 1455," according to the Met's website. "Included are several new attributions and paintings never before exhibited publicly, as well as numerous reconstructions of dispersed complexes, some reunited for the first time. An additional 45 works by Angelico's assistants and closest followers illustrate the spread and continuity of his influence into the second half of the 15th century."
