Seattle Art Museum (SAM) showcases Michelangelo Drawings from Florence

Michelangelo Buonarroti, Italian,1475-1564 - Study of a man's face for the Flood in the Sistine ceiling, 1509-1510, Red chalk. , 4.92 x 5.59 inches. - Photo courtesy of Fondazione Casa Buonarroti.

SEATTLE, WA.- Michelangelo’s towering reputation as
the quintessential Renaissance man — architect, painter, sculptor, poet and
engineer — intimidated both his contemporaries and later historians to the point
that the adjective “divine” became a fixture attached to his name.

Bringing together drawings and sculptural models by Michelangelo with a range of
works by his contemporaries and generations of followers, Michelangelo Public
and Private: Drawings for the Sistine Chapel and Other Treasures from the Casa
Buonarroti is a small but powerful exhibition that humanizes the great master,
exposing the working process that led to masterpieces such as the Sistine Chapel
ceiling frescoes. Organized by the Seattle Art Museum (SAM), the
exhibition’s only venue, in collaboration with the Casa Buonarroti in Florence,
Italy, Michelangelo Public and Private will show a side of this unequivocal
master that he never wanted the public to see. The exhibition will be on view through January 31, 2010.
