Join us on an exploration of the exquisite ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in this collection of beautiful photolithographs. Painted by famous Renaissance sculptor and artist Michelangelo, the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel was the pinnacle of the High Renaissance, with hundreds of nude and clothed figures adding depth and a quality of craftsmanship that many have tried to reproduce since. Each print focuses on details from the ceiling, and reflects the enormous amount of care and detail that went into the important religious and cultural treasure that the Sistine Chapel is today.
