  • An Art-Filled Virginia Weekend

    by Casey | Posted on February 15th, 2013

    Some art adventures are once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. I mean, who doesn’t want to see an authentic Michelangelo? While we can’t move the Louvre to Virginia, we can certainly bring a little bit of Louvre-level, iconic art here.

    Madonna and Child by Michelangelo, Florence, Casa Buonarroti

    Madonna and Child by Michelangelo, Florence, Casa Buonarroti

    Between now and April 14, Michelangelo: Sacred and Profane is on display at the Muscarelle Museum of Art at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg. It’s a rich and varied collection of 26 drawings straight from his family home in Florence, Italy, Casa Buonarroti. Several pieces of this collection are on display for the very first time in the United States; be one of the first to see the master’s work for just $15 per person.

    Of Michelangelo’s piece to the right, the Muscarelle Museum of Art writes, “Throughout his career, Michelangelo (1475-1564) alternated between interpretations of the divine and the worldly, or profane. The master’s powers to evoke the sacred are fully displayed in the large drawing “Virgin and Child,” which is one of Michelangelo’s most admired images. The statuesque figures of the child is contrasted to the expressive freedom of the Madonna’s face, which appears to see the future with foreboding.”
