Chrysler Museum of Art: European Art of the 12th to 19th Centuries

The are the galleries the trace art's evolution from the late medieval times through the renaissance to the cusp of the enlightenment.  Lots of Saints and Martyrs and then not.  The collection is a lovely representative sampling with few big names, once names became important, but within the works shown, there is much to enjoy!
"Basket of Plums" by Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin, 1765
"The Card Players" by Giovanni Battista Boncori, circa 1675
"Saint Sebastian" by Nicolas Régnier, circa 1620
"Saint John the Baptist" by unknown German, 17th century
 The galleries are specious, well lit and lovely throughout the museum.
"The Visitation" by Carlo Tagliapietra, circa 1730
"Adoration of the Magi" by Giovan Filippo Criscuolo, circa 1545
"Saint Francis Receiving the Stigmata" by the Master of the Coronation of the Virgin of Biella, circa 1540
