BRIEF ABOUT: The Frist Center is the exclusive venue for this exhibition and for the first time in its history, the Frist Center is borrowing works from the Vatican Library and Vatican Museums. In addition, twenty-eight American museums and libraries, including the Art Institute of Chicago, the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, National Gallery of Art and Pierpont Morgan Library are lending works to the exhibition.

     ‘Sanctity’ brings together more than sixty works of art: drawings, illuminated manuscripts, liturgical objects, paintings, prints, printed books and sculptures which will explore the role of the two major new religious orders in the revival of the arts in Italy during the period 1200 to 1550.

     In addition to the above, this exhibition is the first major presentation of Italian Renaissance art in Nashville since 1934, when selections from the Samuel H. Kress collection were shown at the city’s historic replica of the Parthenon.
