Italian Renaissance Drawings and Prints from The British Museum: Christ: Life, Death, and Resurrection (September 13 – December 15, 2019)

Hoehn Family Galleries Exhibit

Christ: Life, Death, and Resurrection includes over 40 original drawings and prints by Italian Renaissance artists — including Michelangelo, Filippo 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.

Hugo 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.

The presentation of this exhibition is a collaboration between the British Museum, the University of San Diego, and Timken Museum of Art, San Diego.
