Title: RETURN TO GLORY: MICHELANGELO REVEALED
Movie ID: VT2736
Movie Number: 2736
Description: Where there were only areas of darkness and deep shadow, there is now a wealth of detail and luminous color: purple ripples on a youth's stockinged leg; the scratchy gray of an old man's beard emerges soft and snowy white; a long-lost earring gleams again. In 1980, work began on the restoration of Michelangelo's frescoes in the Vatican's Sistine Chapel. Return to Glory: Michelangelo Revealed is the exclusive film record of the first phase of the 12-year endeavor that has been hailed as "the most significant art event of the century." Five hundred years of candle soot, incense smoke, pollution, and previous restoration attempts had dulled the frescoes. Mounted on the restorers' scaffolding, the cameras closely follow the meticulous cleaning of the lunettes--14 semicircular frescoes on the sides of the chapel. Edwin Newman explains each step while the restorers carefully analyze and remove centuries of dirt to reveal the magnificent colors of the original art. Far painter he has always been taken for, Michelangelo is being rediscovered as a bold colorist who painted with astonishing subtlety and skill. Superbly produced by Nippon Television, Return to Glory: Michelangelo Revealed is an elegant and accurate account of the remarkable events that have lead to a radical reassessment of Michelangelo the man and his work.
