Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman and Designer

Published on December 7, 2017

Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman and Designer presents a stunning range and number of works by the artist: 133 of his drawings, three of his marble sculptures, his earliest painting, his wood architectural model for a chapel vault, as well as a substantial body of complementary works by other artists for comparison and context. Among the extraordinary international loans are the complete series of masterpiece drawings he created for his friend Tommaso de' Cavalieri and a monumental cartoon for his last fresco in the Vatican Palace. Selected from 50 public and private collections in the United States and Europe, the exhibition examines Michelangelo's rich legacy as a supreme draftsman and designer.

The exhibition takes place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art 1000 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10028 and runs from 11/13-2/12/17.
