Installation at Metropolitan Museum of Art
Artist: Cristóbal de Villalpando
What We Did:
On Monday, July 10, 2017, Tom Zoufaly and his team from Art Installation Design installed Cristóbal de Villalpando’s earliest masterpiece, a monumental painting showing two scenes—Moses and the brazen serpent, and the Transfiguration of Jesus—in an unprecedented juxtaposition of these Old and New Testament subjects.
Painted in 1683 for a chapel in Puebla Cathedral and newly conserved, the 28-foot-tall painting has never before been exhibited outside its place of origin in Puebla, Mexico.
