Pilgrimage to "Offering of the Angels" Collection at the Chazen, Nov. 2012
In keeping with the Church's focus on beauty during the Year of Faith, the Cathedral Parish took advantage of a unique opportunity for a parish pilgrimage right in Madison as we viewed "Offering of the Angels: Paintings and Tapestries from the Uffizi Gallery" at the Chazen Museum of Art on Thursday, November 8th, 2012.
This exhibition of 45 rarely seen paintings and tapestries from the renowned Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy, was on view in the Midwest for the first time. The exhibition of paintings and two tapestries was curated by Uffizi Gallery Director Antonio Natali around the theme of the Eucharist, and offers recently restored works by masters such as Botticelli, Tintoretto, Titian, and il Parmigianino. Spanning approximately three centuries from the late 14th to the early 18th century, these works were executed by some of the leading painters working in Italy, principally in Florence, during the rule of the Medici dynasty.
