Struth Photos: A Sneak Peek

A few weeks back, I posted that our Lower Gallery will become home to two photographs by Thomas Struth for the remainder of the Old Masters exhibition.  I can give you a sneak peek at one of the photographs, The Restorers at San Lorenzo Maggiore, Naples:

The placement of the Old Masters works within our exhibition accentuates their physicality and helps the viewer to re-imagine the galleries as reminders of historic spaces for which such works were either conceived or in which they were later presented, such as the Grande Galerie of a seventeenth-century palace or the interior of a Renaissance of Baroque church.

The paintings Struth depicts in this photograph are stacked one against the other in an open loggia, reminding us of the physicality and ephemeral quality of Old Master paintings before they are hung in a church for devotion of a museum for admiration and study.

Both photographs will be on view starting Wednesday, June 24th.
