On the occasion of the 550th anniversary of the Communion of the Apostles (Urbino, Palazzo Ducale), scholars from all over the world will convene in Rome and Urbino to reconsider the oeuvre attributed to its enigmatic Flemish painter, recorded as Giusto di Gand in Urbino and likely synonymous with the Ghent painter Joos van Wassenhove. Over the course of history the number of paintings attributed to this master has grown, to include works such as the magnificent Triptych of the Calvary (Ghent, Cathedral) and the Adoration of the Magi (New York, Metropolitan Museum). Recent research has offered new insights on their context of creation, dating and attribution. There is no better place to discuss new thoughts and theories about this painter than Urbino, the home of the painter’s principal work of reference made in 1473-1474. The attributed works will be studied in depth and discussed within the broader context of panel and manuscript painting in Ghent and of the arts at the ducal court Federico da Montefeltro in Urbino.
