Michelangelo: Mind of the Master

Published September 30, 2019

Michelangelo: Mind of the Master presents an unprecedented opportunity for museum visitors to experience the brilliance of Michelangelo’s achievements on an intimate scale through more than two dozen original drawings. Michelangelo’s genius is especially evident through his breathtaking draftsmanship on sheets filled with multiple figures and close studies of human anatomy. Also on display are drawings that demonstrate Michelangelo’s inventive preparations for his most important and groundbreaking commissions, including the Sistine Chapel ceiling fresco, sculptures for the tomb of Giuliano de’ Medici, and the dome of Saint Peter’s Basilica.

The exhibition takes place at The Cleveland Museum of Art, 11150 East Boulevard, Cleveland, OH 44106 and runs from September 22, 2019 - January 5, 2020.
