The Agony and the Ecstasy: the sculpture and sonnets of Michelangelo

Lecturer: Shirley Smith
This lecture will study Michelangelo's sculpture and sonnets as a means of better understanding both of the artist himself and his works: from the optimism of the Pieta and David or his youth, through the frustrations of Pope Julius XI's tomb to the agonising Deposition of his later years.
