Mas­ter­pieces on the move

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - NEWS - BY DAVE HIGGENS

The pub­lic are be­ing given the chance to see Michelan­gelo’s mas­ter­pieces from the Sis­tine Chapel in a church in Hull.

Thou­sands of peo­ple have al­ready booked to at­tend “Michelan­gelo – A Different View”, which opens to the pub­lic in Hull Min­ster to­day.

The ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tures more than 50 de­tailed re­pro­duc­tions of Michelan­gelo’s Sis­tine Chapel fres­coes, in­clud­ing the fa­mous “Cre­ation of Adam”, a de­pic­tion of God giv­ing life to the first man, and a six-me­tre square re­pro­duc­tion of “The Last Judg­ment”.

The tour­ing ex­hi­bi­tion gives the pub­lic the op­por­tu­nity to ad­mire the works, fa­mously cre­ated by Michelan­gelo over four years in the 1500s, in a re­li­gious set­ting other than the Vatican for the first time.

Vis­i­tors will be able to get close to the images and have the chance to learn how the Ital­ian mas­ter cre­ated the work and the mean­ing be­hind them, or­gan­is­ers said.

The ex­hi­bi­tion is free to en­ter but there is a tick­et­ing sys­tem for spec­i­fied time slots.
