“Michelangelo – A Different View”

“Michelangelo – A Different View”

On 15th November 2019, students in both Religious Studies and Art had unprecedented access to the Michelangelo’s magnificent paintings which adorn the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican.   The exhibition which came to Hull Minster from October 7th to November 18th was only one of only two UK venues to host it – after touring major European cities, including Copenhagen, Prague and Amsterdam.

Officially licensed by the Vatican Museums, the stunning exhibition allowed the students to view superb reproductions of the elaborate paintings of the Florentine master and attend workshops to learn about the technical process.
