I've spotted on Instagram (via. @bastianeclercy) that although the Saint Louis Art Museum's upcoming exhibition Paintings on Stone has been delayed till 2022, their 320 page exhibition catalogue is printed and available for purchase.

As the publisher's blurb describes:

Painting on Stone: Science and the Sacred  1530–1800

Paintings on Stone: Science and the Sacred examines a fascinating tradition long overlooked by art historians – stone surfaces used to create stunning portraits, mythological scenes, and sacred images. Written by an international team of scholars, the catalogue reveals the significance of these paintings, their complex meanings, and their technical virtuosity.

The catalogue is available to order through the publisher Hirmer Verlag.

The cover features a late sixteenth century painting on Lapis Lazuli by Giuseppe Cesari. The picture was acquired by the Saint Louis Museum of Art in 2000.
