Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman and Designer

Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475–1564) was celebrated for the excellence of his power of drawing and invention that provided the foundation for all the arts.

Professor Thomas Germano will present a visual lecture on the life, times and work of Michelangelo Buonarroti and introduce the works related to this 'once in a lifetime exhibition' in NYC.
