New Yellow Rooms at Uffizi Gallery, Florence

See also

Now open at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy, six new 'Yellow Rooms' featuring paintings by 17th century Florentine artists.

The Yellow Rooms are the latest addition to the New Uffizi project which expands and renovates the western wing of the Vasari complex on the first floor. Previous phases of the project included the opening of ten 'Blue Rooms' (dedicated to foreign artists), nine 'Red Rooms' (featuring 16th century Tuscan masters) and six rooms dedicated to modern Mannerism.

The new Yellow Rooms are numbered 95 to 100 and can be reached from halls 91 and 93, just past the Caravaggio paintings. The rooms are organized by subject and include works by Jacopo Chimenti, Justus Suttermans, Giovanni Bilivert and more. The most significant paintings have been hung on yellow walls reminiscent of lustrous baroque tapestries.

The New Uffizi project is intended to create more space for the Uffizi's magnificent permanent collection, and update climate control and security measures. Completed in 1581, The Uffizi Gallery houses priceless masterpieces of Italian art by Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Giotto, Raphael and Michelangelo.

The Uffizi Gallery museum is one of Europe's most popular attractions. At peak season, queues can exceed an astounding five-hour wait time. Visitors can avoid lineups by purchasing admission tickets in advance on the Uffizi Gallery website.
