(ANSA) - New York, October 24 - Renaissance genius and patron saint of artists Fra Angelico is set to wow New York with the first major American exhibition of his work .
The Metropolitan Museum has combed 50 collections all over the world to serve up 75 works by the master and several more by his pupils. The show spotlights Angelico's pellucid, ethereal altar panels, his otherworldly Madonna and Childs and the intricate decorativeness of his smaller works.
The Met exhibition, which marks the 550th anniversary of the angelic friar's death, runs from October 26 to January 29.
