Among the 50 backdrops received by Texas Performing Arts from the Art Director’s Guild Backdrop Recovery Project was a nearly complete replica of the Sistine Chapel. This exhibition will be the first public viewing of the entire Sistine Chapel suite. See these master illusions in an immersive space designed for personal contemplation and up-close examination of this unique Hollywood motion picture art form.
These hand-painted artworks depict scenes from the Old Testament originally painted by Renaissance Masters such as Michelangelo, Perugino, Botticelli, and others. The backdrops on display were created for the 1968 Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film The Shoes of the Fisherman.
