“Your face, Lord, do I seek.“

Special Exhibition 2020


The special exhibition 2020 shows works by the Leipzig painter, draftsman and graphic artist Michael Triegel. He became known as the painter of two portraits of Pope Benedict XVI. The two paintings are displayed in the Pope Benedict Institute in Regensburg and in the German Embassy at the Holy See in Rome.

Michael Triegel has made a name for himself as a painter of sacred art. Working with Pope Benedict XVI and his Jesus books also led him to devote himself to the Christian faith. The exhibition of his works is under the title "Your face, Lord, do I seek". This psalm verse, which Pope Benedict also preceded his Jesus trilogy, has become life-relevant for Michael Triegel.

The special exhibition "Your face, Lord, do I seek." can be seen from April 19, 2020, the 15th anniversary of the election of Pope Benedict, until October 4, 2020. Accompanying this we invite you to several matinees on Sundays



The Foundation Birthplace Pope Benedict XVI and the staff of the Papsthaus is looking forward to welcoming you.
