The Sistine Chapel exhibit


A ccouple of friends and I went to see the Sistine Chapel exhibit in Charlotte, NC several weeks ago. We were fascinated to see the art work, and I remain dumbfounded to imagine how challenging it would have been for Michelangelo to produce such stunning works of art on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.

  1. Wonderful exhibit! I've been fortunate to see the Sistine Chapel in person twice in my life. The colors and detail are outstanding. Michelangelo was certainly and artistic genius!

  5. Hi Sue. It's impossible to imagine the commitment of Michelangelo in producing those simply wonderful works of art and in this age of distractions like supermarkets, shopping malls, TV and the Internet, we can be sure there will never be another like him.

    Thanks for the link today. Much appreciated.

  17. Visited the Vatican several years ago. Looking up at the ceiling in a crowded room was not the best way to view the amazing artwork. You're lucky to see it up close and personal! Thanks again for hosting!

  20. I've always asked myself about the kind of work done to paint the chapel. This kind of art on huge spaces is difficult, complicated but fabulous. Thank you for sharing these images!

    Happy WW!
    PS. The table from Zina is now on my blog, for a period of time!

  23. The paintings in the Sistine Chapel are second to none. It is good that they are made known to the public and so on, in the form of images displayed on the walls. But they are really impressive there, on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.

    Have a fine week, dear Sue!

  29. I came through a friend on your website and I think it is very clever that ceilings can be painted so beautifully. Its not easy because one stands with head in neck to paint. Greetings from the Netherlands from the area Alblasserwaard in South Holland.
