Michelangelo: Love and Death

April 6 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Michelangelo: Love and Death encore is presented by the Kate and Florence Griswold Museum

Michelangelo: Love and Death encore is presented by the Kate and Florence Griswold Museum.

Michelangelo – Love and Death offers a cinematic journey through the great chapels and museums of Florence, Rome and the Vatican, to the print and drawing rooms of Europe, to explore Michelangelo’s tempestuous life. The film goes in search of a greater understanding of this charismatic and enigmatic figure, both through his relationships with his contemporaries and his ongoing artistic legacy.

The film invites audiences to intimately examine Michelangelo’s art and artistic process – from the Carrara quarries where Michelangelo sourced his marble, to the new technology being used to attribute works.The film also offers a rare chance to get up close to the mesmerising Rothschild Bronzes, which, following an extensive research project carried out by Academics in Cambridge in 2015, were positively attributed to Michelangelo after over a century of debate.
