Getty Plans Shows on Bellini, Pontormo, Manet

La Stampa has an interview (in Italian) with Getty Museum painting curator Davide Gasparotto. He mentions several ambitious upcoming exhibitions: Giovanni Bellini and landscape (fall 2017); a small show on Pontormo, organized with the Uffizi; and for 2019, an exhibition on late Manet, built around the Getty's Jeanne (Spring). At top is Pontormo's Halberdier, c. 1529.


Opening next month at the Getty Center is "Gerard David: An Early Netherlandish Altarpiece Reassembled" (March 21-June 18, 2017). It will reunite panels now owned by museums in London and Antwerp. The two Antwerp paintings were recently conserved by the Getty. Below, the London National Gallery's Christ Nailed to the Cross (c. 1481).
