Vatican City, Nov 16, 2019 / 06:01 am
The Vatican Museums opened Thursday an exhibit of recently restored paintings of the Virgin Mary by early Renaissance painter Carlo Crivelli.
"The Vatican painting gallery has the privilege of having three large scale paintings by Crivelli," Vatican Museums' Curator Guido Cornini told CNA.
"Crivelli is a relatively rare artist, so not many collections in the world may claim the presence of a nucleus of more paintings together," he said.
The restorations were made possible by members of the Patrons of the Arts in the Vatican Museums, the fundraising branch of the Vatican Museums that started in the United States in 1983.
