DOYLESTOWN PA – Lovers of artworks from the famed Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy, will have a chance to view a selection of 45 of its paintings and tapestries in an exhibit that begins Saturday (April 21, 2012) and runs through Aug. 10 at the Michener Art Museum in Doylestown PA.
Until this tour, these works from the Uffizi have never left Europe. Experts say they embody the diversity, stylistic evolution, scale and technical mastery of art from Italy and Northern Europe during nearly 400 years, and represent a survey of European art at an important moment in its history.
The exhibit is titled “Offerings of the Angels” and features works by such Renaissance and Baroque masters as Sandro Botticelli, Il Parmigianino, Lorenzo Monaco, Il Guercino and Cristofano Allori.
The museum is located at 38 S. Pine St., Doylestown; its operating hours are Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; Thursday, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, from noon to 5 p.m.
Admission is free for members of the museum and children age 6 and younger. Tickets for non-members cost $15 for adults, $13 for seniors, $11 for college students with valid ID, and $7.50 for children ages 6-18. Adult group tours are available for $12 per person.
