Botticelli’s Venus on display at MGM (20 Dec - 16 Feb 2014)

For those interested in Italian Renaissance artwork, you will be able to see one of Sandro Botticelli's Venus paintings at the newly opened Art Space area at MGM from now until mid February 2014. See link for details

This is a rare opportunity to see a Florentine Renaissance painting in this part of the world and a chance to learn a bit about Botticelli.

A bit of a spoiler that I should probably mention.... Assuming this is the same Venus painting that was on display at the HKU Museum and Art Gallery last month, it is worth noting that this is one of Botticelli's earlier paintings of Venus and not the famous 'Birth of Venus' painting, which is permanently housed at Museo Ufizzi in Florence.

:) They are worth a second look anyways.

I heard Mr. Steve Wynn has some of the most exquisite collection of paintings in the world, on his private Wynn property. Also some ancient Chinese artifacts as well,worth millions. Sure hope sometime he'd be so kind and have an exhibition of his own and let us all relish the fine collections of art work.

I hope I can go see it. Thanks for mentioning it. You now have bits of Florence as well as bits of Venice in Macau.

on that note, the replica of Colosseo at Fisherman's Wharf gives us a bit of Roma as well.

Indeed, ZhongguoKM. Why don't we start a new thread for a discussion on Italy restaurants in Macau.
