Michelangelo: Sacred and Profane, Masterpiece Drawings from the Casa Buonarroti

Michelangelo: Sacred and Profane, Masterpiece Drawings from the Casa Buonarroti

Michelangelo: Sacred and Profane, Masterpiece Drawings from the Casa Buonarroti will offer an intimate view into the mind of Michelangelo Buonarroti, one of the giants in the history of Western art. A careful selection of drawings attests to the versatile artist’s activities as a sculptor, painter, architect, and military engineer. Exhibition highlights include a large and deeply moving Madonna and Child and several studies related to Michelangelo’s ambitious but unrealized project for the façade of San Lorenzo in Florence, the Medici family burial church. The works, which range from rapid sketches to presentation drawings, all come from the Casa Buonarroti, Michelangelo’s family home in Florence, Italy.
