Exotic, romantic, exquisite, the least known major Venetian mid-Quattrocento altarpiece is the sole work by Fra Negroponte, still in its original site, the cavernous, obscure San Francesco della Vigna. Professor Eisler will discuss this great painting, restored by Save Venice in 2008 with funding from the Boston Chapter of Save Venice.

This lecture is free of charge. Save Venice and Casa Italiana members receive priority seating. RSVP here or by calling 212-737-3141.
