Vatican Museums bring Renaissance masterpieces to South Korea
December 11, 2012
The Vatican Museums are sponsoring an exhibition of 70 Renaissance paintings at the Hangaram Design Museum in the Seoul Arts Center – allowing a largely Buddhist public a glimpse at the some of the greatest works of Christian art.
“This will be the first time that people in that ‘remote’ part of the world will experience the possibility to queue – we hope – and to see these masterpieces and their foundations in the way of the Western art system,” said Guido Cornini, the Vatican Museums’ decorative art curator.
