What's on View


Installation view at Frick Madison of Giovanni Bellini, St. Francis in the Desert


Frick Madison

Third Floor, Room 13

At Frick Madison, Giovanni Bellini's St. Francis in the Desert is displayed in splendid isolation, paired with one of the iconic trapezoidal windows Marcel Breuer designed for the building.

Bellini signed the large panel in the bottom left corner, but the date, patron, and original location of the painting remain unknown. One common hypothesis is that it was painted in the late 1470s for the remote church of San Francesco del Deserto, on an island in the Venetian lagoon.
