The amazing paintings of Vatican Museum, Rome

We were so impressed with all the paintings that we were not totally blown away from the Sistine Chapel. The paintings that are exposed here are in an excellent state and from painters like Raphael, Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Dali, and many other grandmasters. The colours are so overwhelming, the characters in the stories almost jump out of the frame, they look alive. The ceilings are a treasure and incomparable to anything we have seen before. This is not only the case in one room but in the whole museum, it doesn’t stop.

We waren zo onder de indruk van de schilderijen in het Vaticaans Museum dat we niet omver geblazen werden door de impressies in de Sixtijnse kapel. De schilderwerken hier tentoongesteld zijn in uitstekende staat en gemaakt door kunstenaars als Raphael, Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Dali, en vele andere grootmeesters. De kleuren zijn overweldigend, de personages in de verhalen lijken wel uit het werk te springen, ze lijken tot leven te komen. De plafonds zijn schatten en onvergelijkbaar met alles dat we tot nu toe gezien hebben. Dit is niet het geval in één kamer, maar in alle zalen van het museum, het houdt gewoon niet op..

  17. As an art student researching the work of the Impressionists, I have big help from this site called wahooart.com. It's like a good art library, where, convenient for me, works of artists are divided into art movements in history. Some of the works I had never seen before.
    As the canvas prints are affordable, I ordered online a little size canvas print of my favorite,
