The UK premiere of Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel: A Different View allows unprecedented closeness to the magnificent works of Michelangelo which adorn the chapel ceiling, normally 22 metres above visitors’ heads. Officially licensed by the Vatican Museums, the frescoes have been photographed, reproduced at high resolution and transferred onto special fabric webs. This technique allows a true-to-life reproduction of the ceiling and gives visitors a unique opportunity for an otherwise impossible close-up view.

The panels on display vividly reveal how Michelangelo used bright colours for the Sistine Chapel to make the figures more easily visible from the floor. The chapel is peopled with over 300 characters from the Bible. By separating the frescoes into a series of panels, the exhibition allows art lovers to closely study particular aspects of Michelangelo’s work.
