Joseph Brodsky Fellowship Fund brings you a unique opportunity to see this stunning exhibit away from the crowds.
Carmen C. Bambach is Curator of Prints and Drawings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where she has organized exhibitions including Leonardo da Vinci, Master Draftsman, in 2003 and The Drawings of Bronzino in 2010. She is author of Drawing and Painting in the Italian Renaissance Workshop: Theory and Practice, 1300-1600 and is the world's pre-eminent scholar on Michelangelo and Leonardo.
This exhibition 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.
We can only accomodate 25 people for this event.
