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,
