About Out of the Kress Vaults: The exhibition explores representations of femininity and virtue in Renaissance paintings of the Virgin Mary, female saints and martyrs, and nuns. The proposed loans for the exhibition will come from Samuel H. Kress collections at museums and universities including the Austin Arts Center at Trinity College, Harvard Art Museums, the Lowe Museum at the University of Miami, the Mead Art Museum at Amherst College, the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, and the National Gallery of Art, with an emphasis on works currently in storage at their home institutions.
