ANTHONY MOORE: BEHIND THE MODERN PAVISE  Moore’s paintings echo the painted oblong shield, or pavise, that sported religious and heroic imagery and was carried to battle by medieval soldiers. Moore applies a fractured style with realist elements in vivid tones, recalling stained glass. Pictured: “Pavise No. 5, 2012.” Through Feb. 4.
