Michelangelo. The Drawings of a Genius
VIENNA  •  Albertina  •  Ongoing
The Albertina presents around one hundred drawings by Michelangelo. Works from the Graphic Arts Collection of the Albertina, as well as important loans from museums and private collections in Europe and the United States are on view. The show traces Michelangeloís career from the artistís juvenile works and designs for The Battle of Cascina to the world-famous frescoes in the Sistine Chapel, the ingenious drawings he presented to Tommaso deí Cavalieri, and the Crucifixion scenes dating from the artistís late period, when he was almost eighty years old.
