About the exhibition

From the producers of The Art of Banksy and Michelangelo – A Different View comes the most immersive exhibition of the greatest Renaissance artists ever, in one room, in Auckland this January.

Direct from Europe, RENAISSANCE: THE AGE OF GENIUS brings to life about 500 works by unparalleled Renaissance artists including Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Sandro Botticelli, Titian, Caravaggio, Giotto, Peter Bruegel the Elder, Lucas Cranach the Elder and Albert Durer.

These paintings from museums worldwide will be shown using specialist multimedia projection, transporting visitors along an awe-inspiring journey through the art of  the 15th and 16th Centuries.

The scale of the projection will see the artworks at roughly twice human height, thrusting viewers into the atmosphere of paintings and offering a rare insight into what was going through the minds of these geniuses hundreds of years ago.

There will be a Souvenir Booklet providing detailed information about the ten Renaissance Artists featured in this exhibition. The Souvenir Booklet will be available at the exhibition for $10.
