PROVO — The BYU Museum of Art will replace four paintings in the “Sacred Gifts: The Religious Art of Carl Bloch, Heinrich Hofmann and Frans Schwartz” exhibit Feb. 24.
The last chance patrons will have to see “Sermon on the Mount,” “The Shepherds and the Angel,” “Let the Little Children Come Unto Me” and “Healing of the Blind Man,” all by Danish artist Carl Bloch, will be Feb. 22. Four different Bloch paintings, “Cleansing of the Temple,” “The Denial of Peter,” “Christ on the Cross” and “The Burial,” will then be put on display.
The artwork is on loan from the Frederiksborg Castle in Denmark for the first time. Mette Skougaard, director of the Museum of National History at Frederiksborg, said in a news release that these paintings will never leave Frederiksborg again.
The “Sacred Gifts” exhibit will be closed during daytime hours Feb. 24 while the paintings are installed and will reopen in the evening that day.
Free tickets to see the exhibition are available online at sacredgifts.byu.edu/tickets or by phone at 801-422-8258.
