DID YOU REPRODUCE EVERYTHING INSIDE THE SISTINE CHAPEL?
A: Our exhibit focuses on Michelangelo’s contributions to the Sistine Chapel: namely the artwork from the ceiling and the Last Judgment. By bringing the artwork closer, we hope the visitor will be able to appreciate these famous masterpieces from a new perspective.
IS THE ARTWORK IN THE EXHIBIT THE SAME SIZE AS THE ORIGINAL IN THE VATICAN? HAS IT BEEN ALTERED IN ANY WAY?
A: Since the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel is curved, these reproductions are as close to the original size as possible; however, our mission was never to copy the entire ceiling, so some of the bordering elements such as the Ignudi angels and other framing devices are not included. It was necessary to crop some of the images in order to fit them into the display design, but rest assured: all key images from the Chapel are included in the exhibit.
WHAT IS THE SOURCE OF THE IMAGES AND WHEN WERE THEY TAKEN?
A: The exhibit is produced by Special Entertainment Events (SEE), a L.A.-based exhibition production company which acquired the worldwide rights to the fresco reproductions from Bridgeman Images. The photographs were taken post-restoration of the ceiling; in some cases, color enhancement was necessary to match the images for consistency.
