Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman and Designer
The Metropolitan Museum of Art November 13, 2017 - February 12, 2018
Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475– 1564), a towering genius in the history of Western art, will be the subject of a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition opening at The Metropolitan Museum of Art this fall.
During his long life, Michelangelo was celebrated for the excellence of his disegno, the power of drawing and invention that provided the foundation for all the arts. For his mastery of drawing, design, sculpture, painting, and architecture, he was called Il Divino (“the divine one”) by his contemporaries.
The exhibition is made possible by Morgan Stanley. Additional support is provided by an anonymous donor, the Gail and Parker Gilbert Fund, the Diane W. and James E. Burke Fund, Dinah Seiver and Thomas E. Foster, Cathrin M. Stickney and Mark P. Gorenberg,
Ann M. Spruill and Daniel H. Cantwell, and Mark Pigott KBE Family. Exhibition location: The Met Fifth Avenue The Tisch Galleries Gallery 899, 2nd floor The Met Fifth Avenue 1000 Fifth Avenue New York, NY 10028
