From the exhibit description: http://ncartmuseum.org/exhibitions/view/13698 "For the first time in more than 100 years, the eight known panels-and one re-created missing panel-of a 14th-century Italian altarpiece depicting Jesus's crucifixion and scenes in the life of St. John the Evangelist can been seen and appreciated as one magnificent work of art." The contrast between the vivid colors and the burnished gilded background of the new panel and the faded, aged colors and the matte and craqued old gilding, was the impetus to a virtual rejuvenation of the old panels and a virtual ageing of the newly painted one, adding a completely different dimension to the exhibit - to open on September 10 in the North Carolina Museum of Art.
