DESCRIPTION

One of the largest collections of art, documents and historically significant objects from the Vatican ever to tour North America arrives at the Museum in late January. Vatican Splendors presents spectacular paintings by artists such as Giotto and Il Guercino and sculpture by Baroque master Gian Lorenzo Bernini, along with unique objects illustrating the Catholic Church’s impact on history and culture. Objects include paintings, mosaics, sculpture, Papal jewels, intricately embroidered silk vestments, uniforms of the Papal Swiss Guard, as well as an elaborately decorated gold and silver reliquary containing bone fragments of Saint Peter and Saint Paul.
