The Assumption of the Virgin stood since 1518 on the high altar of the Frari church, receiveing a constant admiration and as much constant deploration for the bad condition of light that impeded to fully appreciate the painted surface. The painting was damaged by candle smoke, and a better collocation was strongly advised. It was then removed from the altar in 1816 and had the main place in the growing collections of the Gallerie dell’Accademia until the First World War. This contribution describes the conditions in which this arrangement took place.
