St Matthew and the Angel
This special exhibition takes an iconic work from the Ulster Museum’s collection, and gives it pride of place in the heart of the city and as a gift to its citizens for the Christmas period.
Belfast City Council, Ulster University and National Museums Northern Ireland have come together in a unique collaboration. This special exhibition takes an iconic work from the Ulster Museum’s collection, and gives it pride of place in the heart of the city and as a gift to its citizens for the Christmas period.
In its second year, Art Unwrapped will present Giovanni Francesco Romanelli’s ‘Saint Cecilia’ (1610-1662), a much-loved piece and one of his most famous paintings.
Visitors will enjoy not only the opportunity to view a classic artwork but also to have a guided introduction to the work, its history, and its meaning in the modern world. Each tour will be delivered by students from Ulster University’s Fine Art programme and there are several tours scheduled each day lasting approximately 20 minutes, including weekend and evening opportunities. Places are limited and allocated on a first come, first served basis.
