Overview

Papi in Posa: 500 Years of Papal Portraiture by John Paul II Cultural Center

“Papi in Posa,” or “Papal Portraiture,” first shown in the Braschi Palace – home of the Museum of Rome – in 2004 and later in Washington, DC’s John Paul II Cultural Center, was a historic and unprecedented exposition of masterpieces from major international museums – such as the Vatican Museums – and prestigious private collections.

It also stands out because it was one of the most important expositions of portrait painting ever, because of both the outstanding quality and the considerable number of paintings and sculptures offered – executed by Europe’s leading artists from the last five centuries – and the great spiritual and social significance of the personages portrayed: the greatest Pontiffs, who from the 16th century to the present, have sat in the Chair of Saint Peter.
