Art Exhibitions

Religion, Ritual, and Performance in the Renaissance

Stern Gallery

Fall–Spring 2012–13

This academic yearlong exhibition includes more than 30 works—sacred and secular, from both Northern and Southern Europe, and dating from the late 13th—early 17th c.—on loan from the Yale University Art Gallery. These works will be hung alongside stellar examples of Renaissance art from the AMAM permanent collection. The exhibition is made possible by generous funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, as part of a collection-sharing initiative.
