​Installation of "A Closer Look: Early Netherlandish Painting" in Gallery 219 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art

​​​​Graduate student Michele Frederick (CTPhD program) has curated a reinstallation of Gallery​ 219 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, "A Closer Look: Early Netherlandish Painting." This new interpretive space repositions the Museum's masterpieces of small-scale early Netherlandish paintings from the 1400s by prompting visitors to look closely at the magnificent level of detail and artistic skill of these exquisit​e treasures. The centerpiece of the reinstallation is a digital interactive focused on Jan van Eyck's Saint Franc​is Receiving the Stigmata, one o​f the smallest but most significant paintings in the Museum. The interactive enables visitors to dive deeply into the painting to explore its intricate surface, innovative pictorial strategies, and complex symbolism. Other sections of the installation explore the role of devotional imagery, the relationships between manuscript illumination and panel painting, and the rise of intense observation of the natural world to give visitors an in-depth introduction to the transformative movement known today as early Netherlandish painting.
