Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Out of the Kress Vaults: Women in Sacred Renaissance Painting, on view in the Bellarmine Hall Galleries through December 17, 2022.

About Out of the Kress Vaults: The exhibition explores representations of femininity and virtue in Italian Renaissance paintings of the Virgin Mary, female saints, and nuns. This exhibition is the first in the museum’s history to be co-curated with Fairfield University students. Taking inspiration from two paintings of the Madonna and Child in the museum’s own Samuel H. Kress Collection, students in Dr. Michelle DiMarzo’s art history seminar developed the exhibition by examining Kress collections at other institutions, with an emphasis on works typically held in storage.
