How Fra Angelico and Signorelli Saw the End of the World

Hardcover

Book Description
The frescoes of the Cappella Nuova in the Cathedral of Orvieto have fascinated visitors from Michelangelo to Freud and Czelow Milosz because of their dramatic portrayal of the end of the world and the Last Judgment. Creighton Gilbert’s study draws on previously overlooked documents to explain the commissioning of this extraordinary cycle of paintings, begun by Fra Angelico in the 1400s and completed almost a half-century later by Luca Signorelli.

Review
What makes [this] group so fascinating is its concentration on the fifteenth century. Quattrocento drawings are extremely scarce, and many of the examples here are of the highest quality. . . . This catalogue publishes a relatively little-known and under-studied collection, and adds enormously to our understanding of it.

Book Description

This book is the fourth to be published in a series of volumes that will be the first complete scholarly catalogue of the Robert Lehman Collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art--a collection of paintings, drawings, and decorative-arts objects that possesses in itself the breadth and quality of a major museum.
