Beato Angelico's Christ Crucified visible again after restoration


After careful restoration by the Opificio delle Pietre Dure, Beato Angelico's Christ Crucified between Saints Nicholas and Francis will once again be on display.

Beato Angelico’s Christ Crucified between Saints Nicholas and Francis restored: the work will again be on public view from April 10 to June 24 at the headquarters of the Fondazione Cr Firenze in an exhibition curated by Ludovica Sebregondi.

The little-known work dates from around 1430 and was on display in the sacristy of theOratory of the Compagnia di San Niccolò di Bari in Florence.

The restoration was carried out by theOpificio delle Pietre Dure thanks to funding from the Fondazione Cr Firenze.

The painting on shaped panel was attributed to Fra Angelico only in 1909, although the first record of the work dates back to October 23, 1564.

In addition to Christ Crucified, an ex-voto panel from the workshop of Jacopo da Empoli, found a year ago in the false bottom of a closet in the archives of the Compagnia di San Niccolò di Bari, will be displayed. This work was also restored thanks to a grant from the Fondazione CR Firenze.
