Michelangelo, The Delphic Sibyl (c.1509) 350cm x 380cm Unwinding a scroll with her left hand, the Delphic Sibyl seems to be turning toward the viewer. The effect of movement is accentuated by the swirls of the light blue mantle lined with yellow fabric with red shadows and the pattern of the folds of the light green tunic. The very refined colours are characterized by delicate tonal passages and enamel-like surfaces. The unique female figures and representations of the eternal mother are overwhelming. Of course, the Sibyls differ vastly from the Prophets, for Michelangelo remained mindful of the saying 'mulier taceat in ecclesia'. With the exception of the Pythia of Delphi, they are not conceived as priestesses. It is that which is beautiful and most characteristic, in short, their essentially feminine quality, that is brought out. As a group, including not only the three beautiful young women but the others too, they represent the Renaissance ideal of the virago, in the original sense of the word; a woman physically and mentally heroic. One must imagine these Sibyls free of male bondage, chiefly because their male aspect, existing side by side with the female - for they are not masculine women - is very much in evidence in the form of strength and power. This, admittedly, applies least of all to the Pythia of Delpbi who shines with a priestly and inspired radiance, which does not prevent this pagan servant of Apollo from being a young and enchanting girl. The Delphic virgin is coifed with a white priestly band beneath a peacock blue headdress draped like a crown or diadem; she gives true oracles and lives on in the great Holy Virgins of Christian art, who often wear a sibylline expression. The left arm bent over the open scroll is prefigured in the 'Madonna Doni', the fair hair is blown back by the wind of the spirit.#Michelangelo #TheDelphicSibyl #DelphicSibyl #CappellaSistina #SistineChapel #Vatican
Cleaning out my phone to make room for London and realized I left out sooo many things!! . 02/02/2018 Michelangelo exhibition at the Met. . Going through these pics, I know why I didn't post any pic from this exhibition 😂😂😂 because there're all bad pics! All the pics either have lots of people ( yeah, it was a blockbuster show and one of the top visited exhibitions in Met's visitors history. And, yah, of course I went on the last weekend or somethin.. Too many people) in the background, or it's blurry (those sketches are like million years old, super sensitive to light and delicate af. So the light was dim and all sketches are in glazing frame - blurry and glares!!) These are the only few not as bad... . He's definitely obsessed with macular male body. Even the baby 👶 figure has 6 packs.....(last pic) 😂😂😂 . . . #michelangelo #met #themet #metmichelangelo #painting #sketches #drawing #art #oldmasters #sistinechapel #vatican #highrenaissance #renaissanceart #renaissance

Sistine Chapel is such an absolute masterpiece! Gazing up at the beautiful ceiling was a breathtaking experience that I'll never forget. Truly one of the best creation of the 16th century by Michelangelo. So glad my fascination with his work for last 10 years did not let me down. Certainly was the best part of this Euro Trip. Day 8 - Vatican City, Italy . . . #vatican #sistinechapel #vaticancity #rome #michelangelo #cappellasistina #vaticanmuseum #thelastjudgement #museivaticani #chapel #italy 🇮🇹 #italy #italytrip #architectural #potd #beauty #architecture #photography #travelgram #travelworld #holiday #travelbug #travel #history #2018 #2018checklist #europetravel #europe

Last weekend in Italy. Had to do the Vatican the right way and finally see the Colosseum. Next stop #Guam #unauthorizedpicofthesistinechapel #rome #vatican #colosseum #myjobisbetterthanyours #italy #sistinechapel
Sunny day in Rome 🇮🇹 good day to finish the weekend before London 🇬🇧 bound #thisisrome #thisisitaly 🇮🇹 #merkatonatalizio #buonnatale 🎄 #pizzanovano #vatican #sistinechapel #christmasmarket #christmasiseverwhere @edygoesabroad #instarome #instaphotography
Today was a special day. Waking up at 4 in the morning to go open up the Vatican was the best way to start the day. Opening doors, turning on lights, and waiting for the pope to finish his prayers at the Sistine chapel made for an incredible morning. With the added bonus of taking pictures of the Sistine chapel with permission from the key master this was the absolute best way to experience the Vatican. 🔥😎 . . . . . #vatican #sistinechapel
To paint is to express but to express God is the highest form of enlightenment. So blessed to witness this. So lucky to take the photo. I’ve waited all my life for this. - - - - - - #travel #travelblogger #vaticancity #vaticanmuseum #instagram #bloggerstyle #photography #tumblr #instapic #renaissance #sistinechapel #michelangelo

Just regular Italy’s ceilings
This may be my last trip here in Italy, but it’s one of the most memorable experiences I’ve had #Rome #sistinechapel #saintpeterssquare
12/14/2018: Yes, yesterday. It was date night with the missus (@ms.shan.lynn.cat ) and we went to Butcher and the Rye (@butcher_rye ). ———————————————————————- The highlight was the duck liver pâté, and learning how to type letters with accent marks over them on my phone. ———————————————————————- Also, the bathroom had a sweet, photorealistic recreation of the Sistine Chapel in it. I’ve been to the Sistine Chapel, and I’d add a picture for comparison, but the guards there immediately pounce on anyone who tries to take a picture of it. So I don’t have one. ———————————————————————- Lastly, if you were compelled to seek out this post because of the note I left in the brand new check-signing notebook there, and you read through all my nonsense all the way down to this point, Congratulations! You’ve found the first #BoboftheDay Easter Egg! Just comment “First” on this post and DM me a picture of you with the notepad, and I’ll give you $50. (Friends, family, restaurant staff and previous winners are not eligible to win.) ———————————————————————- #DateNight #NightOut #FineDining #Food #InstagramFood #ButcherandtheRye #Pittsburgh #DowntownPittsburgh #DuckLiverPate #Pate #SistineChapel #Pigs #BoboftheDay

The Vatican and Sistine Chapel were amazing! I don’t know why they won’t allow people to photograph the ceiling, but I’m so glad I had the opportunity to see it. ❤️❤️❤️ #vaticancity #sistinechapel #Raphael #michaelangelo #schoolofathens #tripofalifetime #salvadordali
The Vatican City. The smallest country in the world and the most beautiful place I have ever seen 😍 #vaticancity #vatican #sistinechapel #rome #italy #stpetersbasillica #pope #popefrancis #cathedral #church
У цій Капелі з кінця XV століття Римо-католицька церква проводить свої конклави, побудована вона у 1473-1481 рр, а її стіни розписували Мікеланджело, Боттічеллі, Пінтуріккіо... Однією з найвідоміших у світі робіт Мікеланджело є фреска "Сирашний суд", що розміщена на вівтарній стіні і була написана у 1536-1541рр. Відвідувачам Ватиканських музеїв категорично забороняється фотографувати у капелі, але іноді з'являються можливості, від яких не в силі та й нема бажання відмовлятися... ;) Декілька фото із Сіктинської капели для вас, дорогі друзі... #sistinechapel #sistine #musei #museivaticani #vatikan #vatican #vaticano #museo #roma #michelangelobuonarroti #botticelli #giustizia #court #capella #church #arts_promote #arts #artsagram

Quando resti senza parole davanti a così tanta maestosità... ⤵ La Scuola di Atene è un affresco (770×500 cm circa) di Raffaello Sanzio, databile al 1509-1511 ed è situato nella Stanza della Segnatura, una delle quattro "Stanze Vaticane", poste all'interno dei Palazzi Apostolici. vaticancity#vaticanmuseum #igerslazio #sistinechapel #perfezione ##vatican #rome #italy #roma #travel #vaticancity #italia #vaticano #europe #architecture #travelphotography #vaticanmuseum #stpetersbasilica #trip #photooftheday #instagood #instatravel #vacation #sanpietro #wanderlust #love #picoftheday #history #pope #travelblogger #yallerslazio
The #OratoriodelGonfalone or #OratoryoftheBanner is a #building in Central #Rome which once housed a #Catholic fraternity. Founded in 1264 under the name of the Accomandati di Madonna Santa Maria, over the centuries the group dedicated itself to various activities, including the participation in religious processions as banner carriers (wearing white gowns with peaked blue hoods), and also of putting on a yearly passion play. They also were involved in charity towards the poor and needy, and during 1581–1765, of freeing Italians enslaved in Muslim and Slavic lands. The fraternity was awarded the Golden Rose in 1526 by Clement VII, and given by Julius III in 1550 the prerogative to pardon one individual. In 1890, the fraternity was dissolved and its property confiscated by the state. The building on Via del Gonfalone 32a (near corner of #ViaGiulia  and #VicolodellaScimmia ) has a modest #façade (designed by #DomenicoCastelli ) resembling a simple church. Inside, a team of prominent #Mannerist  #painters were recruited between 1569–1576 to complete elaborate wall fresco decoration of scenes of the passion. The site has been called the #Sistinechapel of #Mannerism . The #Passionpanels are flanked by quadratura spiral columns (said to have been of the type found in the Temple of Solomon) and surmounted by images of prophets and sybils. The restored #frescoes are vivid in coloration. The oratory's frescoes were restored in the recent decade, and the site is used for many of the concerts by the #CoroPolifonicoRomano . #italia #italie #historicalbuildings #historicalplace #music #concert #classicalmusicians #classicalmusic
You're not allowed to talk or take pictures but I had to sneak a few just to show the world Michelangelo's paintings on the sistine chapel #theVaticanMuseum #sistinechapel
