Parish Pilgrimage to Collection from Uffizi Gallery at the Chazen

Chazen_Image.jpgIn keeping with the Church's focus on beauty during the Year of Faith, we will be taking advantage of a unique opportunity for a parish pilgrimage right here in Madison as we view Offering of the Angels: Paintings and Tapestries from the Uffizi Gallery at the Chazen Museum of Art on Thursday, November 8th, 2012.

This exhibition of forty-five rarely seen paintings and tapestries from the renowned Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy, will be on view in the Midwest for the first time. The exhibition of paintings and two tapestries was curated by Uffizi Gallery Director Antonio Natali around the theme of the Eucharist, and offers recently restored works by masters such as Botticelli, Tintoretto, Titian, and il Parmigianino. Spanning approximately three centuries from the late fourteenth to the early eighteenth century, these works were executed by some of the leading painters working in Italy, principally in Florence, during the rule of the Medici dynasty. The exhibition is organized into six sections: Old Testament; Original Sin and the Fall; New Testament; Mother and Son; The Last Supper, the Passion, and the Cross; The Resurrection and the Eucharist.
