Botticelli’s Venues masterpiece goes on display in Macau

This event has passed
Dec 19-Feb 16

So Botticelli’s Venus has graced Hong Kong this year – but now it stands over the water in our sister SAR. And it’s toasting the opening of a brand new art space at MGM Macau. Venus is one of the most recognised faces of Renaissance art and Boticelli’s most famous masterpiece centres around her beautiful figure in The Birth Of Venus. But this Venus painting, which was painted by the Italian Renaissance master around the same time, is a lesser-known work. At MGM Macau’s new Art Space the piece is accompanied by an informative display of text and images that give depth to Botticelli and Venus’ pasts. There are four zones in the experience – People of the Florentine Renaissance, The Life of Botticelli, Life in Florence, and The Sabauda Venus. There’s also a replica of one of F    lorence’s most iconic pieces of art – Il Porcellino – on display. So, if you missed Venus when she was in Hong Kong earlier this year, or you loved her so much you want to see her again, then head over to MGM Macau and enjoy an unforgettable journey into one of the most important artistic periods in history.

Venus MGM Art Space, Macau, until February 16. Admission is free.
