The Triumph of the body. Michelangelo and 16th-century italian drawing
6 April – 30 June 2019
Following its Leonardo Da Vinci exhibition, from spring 2019 the Museum of Fine Arts will host a show of the drawings of Michelangelo, the other genius of the Italian Renaissance. Drawing played a central role in the art of Michelangelo, who left behind an outstanding legacy mainly as a sculptor but also as a painter and architect.
The depiction of the human body was pivotal to Michelangelo’s art. The Budapest exhibition will display thirty of the master’s nude studies, loaned from the world’s most prestigious collections, including the British Museum, the Uffizi, the Louvre, the Casa Buonarroti, the Albertina, the Teylers Museum and the Ashmolean Museum. Michelangelo’s masterpieces, such as numerous drawings made for the Sistine Chapel ceiling and The Last Judgement, will be shown in the constantly changing artistic environment of the 15th and 16th centuries, alongside drawings by his most talented contemporaries, including Leonardo, Raphael, Signorelli, Pontormo, Bronzino, Salviati and Rosso Fiorentino. The Budapest exhibition comprising eighty drawings will be the first to bring Michelangelo’s unparalleled art to the Hungarian public.
