Ph.: Eriksbergshallen, Gothenburg (Sweden)Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael are the three great Italian artists, which are now in a Swedish major new exhibition entitled “And There Was Light” in the Eriksbergshallen: a key aim of this event is to bring to life for modern visitors the works of long-dead big artists.
This exhibition, expected to draw visitors from across Europe, is opened in the southwest city of Gothenburg, bringing together work by these Italy’s three Renaissance superstars and it’s being billed as once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view the output of all three great masters side-by-side in a single event.

The Gothenburg show marks the first stage on a great project, a six-year international tour that will travel the globe, spotlighting masterpieces that have cost organizers over 100 million euros to insure. On display here are 60 centuries-old artworks, as well as 17 important pieces by modern artists, among which Andy Warhol.

“And There Was Light” is organized as a sort of journey through the time, i.e. from the 21st century to the Renaissance and then back to the present. It uses original works to explore different techniques and disciplines, looking at panel and canvas paintings, loose-leaf and manuscript drawings in science, technology and architecture, sculpture in stone, bronze and terracotta, and various forms of etchings. It sensitizes the female reproductive viagra uk no prescription organ and enhances blood flow to it, which is a natural response of body to stress.

Just an example: an incredible 40-tonne block of marble has also been shipped all the way from northern Tuscany and goes on display alongside a perfect reproduction of Michelangelo’s David. The block comes from the same quarries in Carrara in Italy, that produced the famous marble for Michelangelo’s original 5.17-metre-high statue and it is designed in order to give visitors a sense of the scale of his achievement.

Within “And There Was Light” and among the pieces expected to draw particular interest is also a newly “discovered” Leonardo’s piece.: it’s “A Young Girl in Profile in Renaissance Dress”, a masterpiece believed to be the work of a 19th-century German artist, until tests revealed a 500-year-old fingerprint of Leonardo. Carbon dating and infrared surveys, has then confirmed the age and style were consistent with a Leonardo work, making it the first new piece attributed to the master in over 100 years. In this way the Gothenburg exhibition will mark the first public display of the painting, since its new identity was announced last autumn.

There is also a multimedia section including reconstructions of artworks, 3D models of machinery designed by Leonardo, digital manuscripts and touch-screen perception tests, exploring the response of observers to the pieces on show.

The Swedish exhibition is also encouraging the public to engage in a more direct and personal experience of art, with a series of interesting workshops, offering them the chance to try their own hand at painting and sculpture.
