Two Renaissance masterpieces are coming to the New Orleans Museum of Art. It will be only the third museum ever to display them together, and the second outside Italy.

A museum news release says Paolo Veronese (POW-loh veh-roh-NAY-zuh) painted "St. Jerome in the Wilderness" and "St. Agatha Visited in Prison by St. Peter" during 1566 and 1567 for a chapel on Murano, an island in the lagoon of Venice.
