Curator’s Introduction: Pesellino: A Renaissance Master Revealed image

Join Dr Imogen Tedbury, Curator of Italian Paintings before 1500, to discover an overlooked Renaissance great as she introduces you to the first-ever exhibition dedicated to Francesco Pesellino.
Pesellino’s talents were hugely sought-after during his lifetime. However, an early death at just 35, and the difficulty in attributing works has meant that his legacy has been largely overlooked. This exhibition seeks to remedy that by shining a light on the depth and breadth of Pesellino’s achievements.
During the talk Imogen will explore two of Pesellino’s masterpieces from the National Gallery Collection – the Pistoia Trinity altarpiece (1455–60), and the newly-restored ‘Stories of David’ cassone panels.
