THE HAND OF GENIUS: The Drawings Of Michelangelo

Ended Jun 18, 2020

Full course description


No artist surpassed Michelangelo in the way drawings were used to prepare for finished works of art. In this lecture, the whole of Michelangelo's career will be covered in his drawings and how he used them as preparatory studies for his work in such masterpieces as; The Battle of Cascina, The Sistine Chapel, The Tomb of Pope Julius II, The Medici Chapel, and The Dome of St. Peters. The drawing materials he used, and his process of beginning with small rough sketches, which evolved to more finished ones, is explored.
