Sistine Chapel Photo Addendum

This was a tough call. Should I post at least some of the photos I took in the Sistine Chapel in 1982 or just refer you to websites that offer background and photos that are not only much better but taken after the frescoes were restored? I decided to do both.

The official Vatican Museums website is http://mv.vatican.va/3_EN/pages/MV_Home.html

The Sistine Chapel pages of the official Vatican Museums website are at http://mv.vatican.va/3_EN/pages/CSN/CSN_Main.html

Not to be outdone by the official website is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/sistine_chapel


And now my photos. Unless otherwise noted, the work is that of Michelangelo Buonarroti, 1475-1564.

West Wall: Lower portion of The Last Judgment
Ceiling: The Separation of the Earth from the Waters
Ceiling: The Creation of Adam
Ceiling: The Prophet Zechariah
North Wall: The Last Supper, Cosimo Rosselli, 1439-1507
