Art historian William E. Wallace, one of the world’s foremost experts on Michelangelo and the Renaissance, says a blockbuster exhibit of Il Divino‘s drawings on view until Feb. 12 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC is “a rare opportunity that probably won’t be repeated within lifetime.”

Wallace, a professor at Washington University in St. Louis, has spent his adult life studying Michelangelo and his world. The author of several books on his hero, shown above, he’s just completed another on Michelangelo’s architectural achievements. His series of lectures on DVD, The Genius of Michelangelo, is available through the Lion Library system.
