REVIEWS
-

"A refreshing deviation from standard gallery fare, [Of Earth and Heaven] features European works from the twelfth through the sixteenth century—gory and ornate renderings of Biblical themes, with all the visual hyperbole and perspectival weirdness one could hope for."

- The New Yorker

"An impressive group of 12th- to 16th-century European art from private collections."

- The Art Newspaper
