The Getty Museum opened the exhibition “Michelangelo: The Master’s Mind”. The exhibition included a collection of rare drawings of the famous sculptor. Thanks to them, viewers will be able to follow the development of the most iconic works of Michelangelo, on each of which the author began to work with a graphic sketch.
“It is through his master drawings that we can witness a spontaneous and expressive creative process. This exhibition showcases works from the unrivaled collection of the Teylers Museum in the Netherlands that have never been exhibited in the United States in such numbers before,” said Museum Director Timothy Potts.
Given that Michelangelo has burned a large number of his drawings, the exhibition provides a rare opportunity to examine in detail a group of surviving sketches. The exhibition includes 28 graphic works, most of which are painted on both sides. The exhibition will last until June 7.
