As part of a new series of summer exhibitions drawn from the National Gallery's permanent collection, 'Devotion by Design' (6 July -- 2 October 2011) focuses on Italian altarpieces ranging from the 13th century to the end of the 15th century.
This exhibition of over 40 works investigates the original functions and locations, as well as formal, stylistic and typological developments of altarpieces, drawing on the wealth of scientific examination and scholarly study undertaken in this field over the past 30 years.
