COLIN EISLER (with the assistance of CAROLINE KELLY) - Fra Antonio Falier da Negroponte’s Madonna and the First Venetian Imperial Style (pp. 71-89)
Still neglected, a major mid-Quattrocento pala by Fra Antonio Falier da Negroponte remains in its original church, San Francesco della Vigna. This study aims to re-evaluate the altarpiece’s sources, date, initial appearance and significance for the history of Venetian art. The pala’s first location is proposed as High Altar for the church before Sansovino’s renovation.
