Donatello Sculptures Coming to the USA
« on: November 22, 2014, 06:44:06 PM »
For those Americans interested in seeing 14th-15th century, Italian sculpture, the opportunity is fast approaching.  The excerpt below was taken from the Washington Post.

Quote
“I will be in uninterrupted prayer until the works are back in my museum,” said the priest, who directs Florence’s Museo dell’Opera del Duomo, which is lending the art out while the museum undergoes renovations.

The sculptures, which were created for the Florence Cathedral (Il Duomo), are headed to the Museum of Biblical Art on Manhattan’s Upper West Side to be showcased in the exhibition “Sculpture in the Age of Donatello,” opening Feb. 20. Donatello’s “Abraham and Isaac,” “Saint John the Evangelist” and “Lo Zuccone” are among the N.Y.-bound trove, which also includes works by Brunelleschi, Nanni di Banco and Luca della Robbia.

Took me a minute but I got that.  :laugh:
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”
