For 4 weeks only explore a remarkable group of drawings by Michelangelo which have recently returned from New York where they were a central feature of an exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This is a unique opportunity to view these drawings, as a selection spanning Michelangelo’s career, before they return to the graphic art collections in the Western Art Print Room. Booking is strongly recommended.
