"Self-Portrait Masterpieces from the Uffizi Galleries Collections" on display at National Museum of China


"Self-Portrait Masterpieces from the Uffizi Galleries Collections" has been on display at the National Museum from April 27th to September 10th, featuring 50 artists from the 16th to the 21st century in chronological order.

The exhibition selected 50 paintings from the Uffizi Gallery's collection, ranging from the Renaissance to contemporary art, including self-portraits by masters such as Raphael, Rubens, Rembrandt, Morandi, Chagall, Yayoi Kusama, and Cai Guoqiang, all of which are authentic. Here, visitors can have a cross-temporal exchange with these art masters and explore their inner worlds.

One of the highlights of the exhibition is the immersive light and shadow experience. This section focuses on the "European Renaissance from the 14th to the 17th century" and uses digital technology to display dozens of art treasures from the Renaissance period, including paintings and sculptures by masters. 

In addition, Ai Wenwen, the National Museum of China's virtual intelligent guide, which was launched online in July last year, will provide voice guidance for visitors. In this exhibition, "Ai Wenwen" will serve as the museum's digital interpreter, leading visitors to explore the self-portraits of 50 art masters. The interactive experience brought by the virtual guide allows the public to understand historical and cultural knowledge in a younger, more fashionable, and more technological way.
