Christ: Life, Death, and Resurrection



Christ: Life, Death, and Resurrection

Christ: Life, Death, and Resurrection will include over 40 original drawings and prints by Italian Renaissance artists—including Michelangelo, Fra Lippo Lippi, and others—from the renowned collection of The British Museum. This exhibition represents the first time that many of these objects will be displayed in the U.S., and thus is a unique opportunity to study these rare and beautiful works. Hugh Chapman, the Keeper of Prints and Drawings at The British Museum, and a leading authority on Michelangelo’s drawings, curated the exhibit, together with his colleague Sarah Vowles.

Michelangelo’s drawing entitled The Three Crosses, depicting Christ on the cross between two thieves, is one of the few large-scale, fully finished drawings by the Italian Renaissance painter and sculptor to survive to our present time. The drawing is joined by scenes of the Nativity, Crucifixion and Resurrection in a variety of masterpieces on paper – from woodcuts and etchings – to drawings in chalk and ink.
