Bastianino: The Living Cross of Ferrara The Restoration of a Forgotten Altarpiece

Sebastiano Filippi (called Bastianino) created the unusual large-format painting The Living Cross around 1565–70 for the Santa Catarina Martire monastery and church in the Italian city of Ferrara. Thanks to extensive restoration work, the altarpiece is once more on display to the public for the first time in over 100 years in a focused special exhibition at the Gemäldegalerie. It is one of just two works by the painter held in Germany.
