15th-Century Sculpture That Was Smashed To Pieces Back On Display At Met Museum

Adam-Tullio “On the evening of 8 October 2002, the Metropolitan Museum of Art suffered what its former director Philippe de Montebello described as the ‘single worst thing that has ever happened at the museum’. One of its greatest treasure, Tullio Lombardo’s life-sized marble sculpture of the nude Adam crashed to the stone floor as its medium-density […]
