Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition Reopens
Thirty-four photographic reproductions of art from the Sistine Chapel have returned to the Dallas Women’s Museum and will be on display through January 8, 2017. The exhibit features enormous panels that allow viewers to gain a close-up view of Michaelangelo’s masterpieces. The most famous of these are The Creation of Adam and a 40×41-foot rendition of The Last Judgment.
The photos were taken by Austrian-born Magnum photographer Erich Lessing during the 1980–94 cleaning and restoration of the chapel. The now-enlarged images, exhibited on brilliantly illuminated panels have outstanding resolution, clarity and color.
To aid viewers’ understanding are fully narrated audio tours (available in English and Spanish) that provide narrative and insight behind each panel on display.
