Gallerie dell'Accademia, Organ Doors, 1982


Gallerie dell'Accademia, Organ Doors, 1982 These doors consist of four large shutters painted by Sebastiano del Piombo (1485-1547) in 1507-1509, originally for a now vanished organ in the 12th-century church of San Bartolomeo. They hang today in the Accademia. A generous donation from the Foundation Jean-Barthelemy enabled Venice in Peril to restore them for the 'Genius of Venice' exhibition at the Royal Academy, London, in 1983.
