The North Carolina Museum of Art (NCMA) presents Reunited: Francescuccio Ghissis St. John Altarpiece, the first time in more than 100 years that the altarpieces, eight known panels and one recreated missing panel, can be seen and appreciated as one work of art. During the 19th or early 20th century, Ghissis St. John Altar piece was dismantled and sawed apart, and its nine panels were sold separately to art dealers and collectors. Three panels are today in the NCMAs collection; one panel is in the Portland Art Museums collection; three are in the Metropolitan Museum of Art; and the central Crucifixion panel is at the Art Institute of Chicago. After more than a century of separation, the individual panels travel to the NCMA to be reunited in an exhibition that retells the story of this Renaissance masterwork.
