Travels With A Curator: “San Severino Marche”, Italy (Frick Collection)

In this episode of “Travels with a Curator,” Xavier F. Salomon, Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator, invites us to the Italian city of San Severino Marche to investigate the mystery of the Frick’s “Coronation of the Virgin,” by Paolo Veneziano. The gold-ground panel was originally part of a larger ensemble, but the altarpiece was dismembered sometime before the 1820s. What do we know about the polyptych—and where are the other fragments? Search for clues in a Dominican church just outside the city walls.
