Did you know?

The removal of a thick coat of soiled and discolored varnish in 1943 gave this painting new life.


Neri de Bicci was a prolific painter of mainly religious themes, active principally in Florence as a panel painter. His grandfather, Lorenzo di Bicci was also a painter in Florence. His journals from the years 1453–75, including the rates of payment for his work, are still preserved in the library of the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.
