Pontormo: Miraculous Encounters

GETTY CENTER

Upcoming, February 5 - April 28

At the end of the 1520s, during the siege that brought to an end the last Florentine Republic, the painter Jacopo da Pontormo created one of his most moving and innovative altarpieces, the Visitation. Recent conservation has created the extraordinary opportunity for the work to travel for the first time from Carmignano (near Florence) to the United States. This exhibition presents Pontormo’s spectacular painting alongside its preparatory drawing and two exceptional portraits painted during the same tumultuous period.
