Derivations from Michelangelo

Derivations from MichelangeloThe contents of this hall testify to the popularity of Michelangelo’s graph- ic, pictorial and sculptural ideas over the course of the sixteenth century.

Almost all the works on show here come from the Florentine state collections and entered Michelangelo at different times, largely through the efforts of Giovanni Poggi (1880-1961), an expert on Michelangelo and for many years the Superintendent of the Florentine Galleries.
