This exhibition of Italian masterworks from the Renaissance through the Baroque period is drawn from the permanent collection of the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, one of the world’s greatest art museums. The Uffizi Gallery dates to 1560 and began its storied history as the repository of the priceless collection of Florence’s famous Medici family. Offering of the Angels is comprised primarily of recently restored works drawn exclusively from the Uffizi collection. The exhibition originally opened in the Uffizi’s Sala delleReali Poste in 2008, and traveled to Madrid and Barcelona in 2009. It will open at the Telfair on December 7, 2012, as part of a four-venue United States tour. Offering of the Angels provides a rare opportunity to view exquisite paintings and tapestries by many of the greatest artists of the Renaissance, Mannerist, and Baroque periods of Italian art, including Botticelli, Titian, Il Parmigianino, Tintoretto, Lorenzo Monaco, and Guercino.
