Pontormo: Miraculous Encounters
September 7, 2018 through January 6, 2019
At the end of the 1520s, at the time of the siege that brought to an end the last Florentine Republic (1529–1530), the painter Jacopo da Pontormo, (1494–1557) created one of his most moving and groundbreaking paintings, the altarpiece of the Visitation.
Drawing on the Morgan's superb collection of illuminated manuscripts, this major exhibition, the first of its kind in North America, will explore the complex social role of monsters in the Middle Ages.
Best known for his luscious paintings of pies and ice-cream cones, California artist Wayne Thiebaud (born 1920) has been an avid and prolific draftsman since he began his career as an illustrator and cartoonist.
To mark the seventy-fifth anniversary of the publication of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic story The Little Prince, the Morgan presents five newly discovered drawings by the author as well as intimate memorabilia from his time in New York during the 1940s.
