Catch a curator’s talk about the acclaimed SAM special exhibition Michelangelo Public and Private. Chiyo Ishikawa, the museum's Susan Brotman Deputy Director for Art and Curator of European Painting & Sculpture, shares details about Michelangelo’s preparatory drawings for the Sistine Chapel. These drawings have rarely left Italy and are some of the few that remain from the Renaissance master. Michelangelo protected his image as an artist who was divinely inspired by burning his sketches. Details about his life will be revealed in this free lecture.
