Gerard David: An Early Netherlandish Altarpiece Reassembled


North Pavilion, Plaza Level

Gerard David (about 1460–1523) painted some of the most compelling and technically exquisite works in the Netherlands around 1500. This exhibition reunites three parts of a remarkable altarpiece for the first time in almost a century: two dramatic wings (Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten Antwerp), which have been studied and conserved at the Getty Museum, and David's striking central panel, Christ Nailed to the Cross (London, National Gallery). The display confirms that together the paintings form one of the artist's earliest triptychs and presents findings from the project.
