Michelangelo Buonarroti continues at Palace of Fine Arts, parte 1, Mexico City…Miguel Ángel Buonarroti continúa en el Palacio de Bellas Artes, parte 1, Ciudad de México

Michelangelo, Da Vinci united in Bellas Artes
The two men are hailed as the most important artists of the Italian Renaissance and the Palace of Fine Arts will be showing some of their more representative works. Many have never before been seen in Latin America.
At top, Michelangelo’s “David-Apollo” which will be on exhibit at the same museum through Sept. 27.
Mexico City art lovers will have the opportunity to gaze upon little-known works by Renaissance giants Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci beginning June 26.
The Palacio de Bellas Artes in the Historic Center of the Mexican capital plays host to two exhibitions, featuring pieces that have never before been displayed in Latin America: “Michelangelo Buonarroti: An Artist between two Worlds” and “Leonardo Da Vinci and the idea of Beauty.”
The Michelangelo exhibit will be in Mexico through Sept. 27, but the Da Vinci exhibit will only be here through Aug. 23.
“They are two artists, not only among the best known, but who also made an absolutely unrepeatable mark on an art period and on the history of culture, which is the Renaissance,” said Rafael Tovar y de Teresa, president of the National Council for Culture and the Arts of Mexico. “I believe that both are the highest points of the Renaissance.”
Two of the most important pieces by Michelangelo that are exhibited are “Cristo Portacroce (Cristo Giustiniani)” and the “David-Apollo.”
“These two piece are quite different but they have in common the fact that they were never completed by Michelangelo,” Luis Javier Cuesta, the co-curator along with Francesco Buranelli, told the Associated Press.
The Cristo (worked on from 1514 to 1516) was sculpted form a block of marble that Michelangelo eventually discarded when a black vein emerged in the subject’s face,” said Cuesta. “Being a perfectionist, Michelangelo could not accept the fact that the black vein was ruining his sculpture.”
This marks the first time the “Cristo-Portacroce” will be shown outside of Italy.
As for the “David-Apollo” (worked on from 1532-1534) was unfinished as a result of Michelangelo’s end-of-life ideological crisis that monopolized his time and prevented him from finishing this and many other works.
This exhibit also features several sketches of the artist’s masterpiece: the murals in the Sistine Chapel. In all, the exhibit comprises 30 pieces of original work by Michelangelo.
