An ultimate biography of Michelangelo who, is considered one of the greatest artists of the renaissance – and perhaps of all time.
The final art documentary in the current Exhibition On Screen season explores Michelangelo’s tempestuous life and takes art lovers on a journey through the great chapels and museums of Florence, Rome and the Vatican, to the print and drawing rooms of Europe, and is screened exclusively at Nouveau cinemas from 17 June.
Michelangelo: Love and Death offers a full and fresh biography of Michelangelo who, is considered one of the greatest artists of the renaissance – and perhaps of all time.
The film documents painter, architect, poet and sculptor Michelangelo, and explores his life and work. He was known as the original, famous artist of his time, having two biographies written about him during his life, biographies on which he worked closely with the respective authors. The Exhibition on Screen documentary delves into the man behind the monumental pieces of art that defined him as the genius of the Italian Renaissance.
Michelangelo: Love and Death explores his relationship with his contemporaries and his immense artistic practice. Among the works explored are the universally adored David in Florence, the frescoes of Sistine Chapel in Rome and the Manchester Madonna.
This film goes to the heart of just who this passionate, giant of art history and much loved genius was. While we know his great work, who was the man that sculpted the universally adored, David, capturing the intricacy of his pulsating veins, sinew and muscle of the human body that would make Michelangelo known as the greatest sculptor of all time?
This intriguing documentary releases exclusively at Nouveau cinemas in Rosebank Nouveau in Johannesburg, Brooklyn Nouveau in Pretoria, Ster-Kinekor Gateway Nouveau in Durban and at V&A Nouveau in Cape Town.
