This exhibition explores the striking Ecce Homo altarpiece painted in 1544 by Dutch Renaissance painter Maerten van Heemskerck (1498–1574), one of the most admired Netherlandish painters of the 16th century.

One of the treasures of the National Museum in Warsaw (Muzeum Narodowe w Warszawie), Poland, the altarpiece has been conserved and extensively studied by a team of curators, conservators, and scientists at the Getty Museum and the Getty Conservation Institute over the course of eighteen months. On view in the United States for the first time, the Ecce Homo altarpiece serves as an ambassador for the National Museum, which celebrates its 150th anniversary in 2012.

Presented in this exhibition are the exciting findings from the project, which have significantly enhanced our understanding of Heemskerck's materials and techniques.
