Jacopo da Pontormo’s “The Visitation” lay in obscurity for centuries in a village church in Tuscany before anyone realized it was the work of an A-list Renaissance artist. Recently restored to its original luster, the altarpiece has left Italy for the first time to get the celebrity treatment it deserves at the Getty Museum in Brentwood. On page 10, Stefano Rebeggiani reflects on how the masterpiece doubles as a profound spiritual meditation that announces the salvation of Jesus Christ — to anyone bothering to pay attention. On page 14, Angelus’ Heather King explains why traffic headaches notwithstanding, the Pontormo exhibit is LA’s must-see museum trip of the year.
