A drawing by Michelangelo

A nice video of 82nd & Fifth, the series edited by the Metropolitan Museum in New York:  the video describes a drawing by Michelangelo – preserved at the MET in NY – in preparation for the painting of the Libyan Sibyl in the Sistine Chapel.

The analysis of this work, chronologically close to the Tondo Doni in the Uffizi – Florence, provides an excellent approach for understanding the style of the Florentine masterpiece.
