The Sistine Chapel came to Hull

Renaissance master Michelangelo spent four years of his life high up on scaffolding under the vaulted ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Rome, painting one of the most famous frescoes in the world.  A replica of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel visited Hull Minster in a unique exhibition, allowing a close-up view of Michelangelo’s brushwork.

Why not use the paintings to illustrate the Christian concepts of God and Creation?


The Methodist Modern Art Collection

The exhibition Battered and Berthed offered the opportunity to reflect on Hull’s relationship with the sea.  Works by artists such as Graham Sutherland, Eric Gill, Elisabeth Frink, William Roberts and Patrick Heron, including The Dalit Madonna by Jyoti Sahi, explored the spirituality of Hull’s heritage.  Teacher Susie Steel has written resources linking the paintings to our syllabus units of work; look up the paintings online to show your pupils:

Untitled – Pentecost     Dalit Madonna     The Pool at Bethesda
