The Triumph of the Body

Michelangelo and Sixteenth-century Italian Draughtsmanship
Budapest, Szépművészeti Múzeum, 06 April 2019 - 30 June 2019
The Hungarian public can see Michelangelo's artworks for the first time within the confines of this exhibition opening in the Museum of Fine Arts, presenting 80 pieces of the famous Renaissance master and his most eminent contemporaries.
Sixteenth-century Italian artists were interested above all in depicting the human body, and Michelangelo’s nudes, captured in a variety of poses, were the models to follow for centuries. His legendary creations that form the basis of his fame, such as the Pietà in St. Peter’s Basilica, the marble David, or the Last Judgment and the ceiling paintings in the Sistine Chapel, can only be studied in situ in Italy, so it is through Michelangelo’s preparatory drawings for these masterpieces that the wider art-loving public can build a picture of his unparalleled genius. 29 drawings by Michelangelo and 50 additional masterworks by his most eminent contemporaries are now being displayed together.
