2017 - 2017

The Gates of Paradise, purchased in February 2017 by Paul and Linda DeBruce, is a promised gift for the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City.  Now proudly displayed in the Bloch lobby, the 17-foot gilded doors are casts of the original doors created in the 15th-century workshop of sculptor and artist Lorenzo Ghiberti.  This art is considered a defining moment in Italian Renaissance.
