Michelangelo and the Art of Drawing in 16th-Century Italy

Following extensive renovation, the Museum of Fine Arts reopened in the autumn of 2018 with an exhibition centred around the person and art of Leonardo da Vinci. The next show, opening in the spring of 2019, will be dedicated to the drawing of another genius of the Italian Renaissance, Michelangelo.
Drawing played a central role in the art of Michelangelo, who left behind a unique oeuvre not only as a sculptor, but also as a painter and architect. More than five hundred of his drawings have survived, which offer insights into the creative process behind legendary works, and reveal a virtuoso who knew the expressive potentials of the different techniques.
Michelangelo’s art focused on the representation of the human body. The Budapest display presents almost thirty of his nude studies, borrowed from some of the world’s most prestigious collections, among the Teylers Museum, the British Museum, the Casa Buonarroti, the Uffizi Gallery, the Louvre, the Albertina, and the Ashmolean Museum.
His drawings, including several ones made for the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel and The Last Judgement, will be presented in the company of works by some of his most talented contemporaries – such as Leonardo, Raffaello, Signorelli, Pontormo, Bronzino, Salviati, and Rosso Fiorentino –, outlining the context in which Michelangelo worked, the ever-changing artistic milieu of the 15th and 16th centuries.

The exhibition is on view between 5 April and 30 June.
