Vatican Library

Art objects


Among the many treasures kept in the Vatican Library, there are hundreds of "non-book" objects which are placed as ornaments around the Institution. These works – paintings, sculptures, furniture and other objects – have been inventoried as Art objects of the Library.
The Art objects (BAVOA) have been catalogued and included both in the general catalogue and (together with images) also in the catalogue of Graphic materials and Art objects.
