Coming this Fall to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a new exhibit will feature a number of works from Michelango Buonarotti including sculptures, drawings, and paintings. Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman & Designer will appear in Gallery 899 at the museum from November 3rd, 2017 through February 12th, 2018. Get a sneak preview of the exhibit in this short video from The Met.

This exhibition will present a stunning range and number of works by the artist: approximately 150 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 54 public and private collections in the United States and Europe, the exhibition will examine Michelangelo's rich legacy as a supreme draftsman and designer.
