Most of Michelangelo's drawings were never intended for public display
New York, NY (PRWEB) April 11, 2013
Michelangelo's drawings offer a unique insight into how the artist worked and thought. They are beautiful artworks in their own right but also provide a crucial link between his work as a sculptor, painter and architect.
Michelangelo began drawing as boy and continued to refine and experiment with the medium — creating both preparatory sketches and finished artworks — until his death. Michelangelo's drawings serve as examples of translating the perception of touch to sight. In other words, his drawings convey to our sight not what we would see but what we would touch. His primary focus as an artist was the male body, and his drawings chart his relentless search to find poses that would most eloquently express the emotional and spiritual state of his subjects.
Most of Michelangelo's drawings were never intended for public display, and he often recycled letters and drawings (working on both the front and back of the sheet) throughout his career. In fact, he would have been appalled to see them exhibited as he hated showing them to outsiders. He destroyed a large number before he died, probably to prevent them from falling into other hands; he may also have wished to conceal the amount of preparation behind his major works.
