Sistine Chapel Ceiling Creation of Adam fresco post restoration Buonarroti Michelangelo Vatican Museums and Galleries Vatican City The Bridgeman Art Library
Impassioned, awe-inspiring grandeur and fervent spirituality emanate from Renaissance genius Michelangelo Buonarroti’s “The Creation of Adam,” the pinnacle of his artistic achievement which he painted on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. One of nine narrative scenes depicting events from Genesis, the fresco, commissioned by Pope Julius II, gloriously depicts the creative flash that transmitted life and love into Adam. Michelangelo (1475 – 1564), who used his mastery of human anatomy and movement to make the figures more lifelike, was also a sculptor, architect, poet and engineer.
This giclée print delivers a vivid image with maximum color accuracy and exceptional resolution. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is acid free with a smooth surface.
