Getting Reacquainted with Michelangelo: Sculpture by Buonarroti in photographs and paintings from the xix century to the present on view at the Accademia Gallery, Florence through 18 May.

@PoloMusealeFi: As part of the celebrations that the Accademia delle Arti del Disegno in Florence has coordinated to commemorate the four-hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the death of Michelangelo Buonarroti, the gallery (in collaboration with Fratelli Alinari I.D.E.A. S.p.A.) will present an exhibition that explores the complex theme of the renewed interest in and admiration for Michelangelo from the nineteenth century until the current day.  This theme will be investigated through the work of sculptors, painters, and photographers who have looked to the figure of Buonarroti and his work as an iconographic point of reference in their own work.
