Tomasz Rut’s Art in the Vatican Collection!

On Wednesday, October 12, 2011 during the artist’s audience with His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI, attended by thousands of spectators from around the world at the St. Peter’s square in the Vatican, two large paintings by Tomasz Rut entered the St. Peter’s cathedral after being blessed by the Holy Father.

During his meeting with Pope Benedict, Tomasz presented him also with the book recently published by Libreria Editrice Vaticana featuring the third of his series of “Nolite Timere” paintings honoring Pope John Paul II and President Lech Walesa.

“I am deeply moved and still overwhelmed by the experience”, humbly says Tomasz Rut, already considered as one of the most collectible contemporary artists: “To see my paintings in the company of Michelangelo, Rafael and all the other great names who have led, defined and inspired our culture for hundreds of years is the greatest honor and acknowledgment I could hope for.”

The two original paintings owned by the Vatican and blessed by His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI, are being released as limited edition prints, signed and numbered by the Artist, and will be available directly from Tomasz Rut Studio.
