The Budapest exhibition presents thirty of his nude studies, borrowed from the world’s most prestigious collections, like the Teylers Museum in Haarlem, the British Museum in London, the Casa Buonarroti and the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, the Louvre in Paris, the Albertina in Vienna, and the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford.Michelangelo’s masterpieces, including several drawings made for the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel and the Last Judgement, will be presented in the context of fifty drawings by some of his most talented contemporaries, such as Leonardo, Raphael, Signorelli, Pontormo, Bronzino, Salviati, and Rosso Fiorentino.
