Le Cupidon de Manhattan

Un Michel-Ange retrouvé ?

Author(s): Jean-René  Gaborit

€ 6.86 tax included

In 1496-1497, the young Michelangelo sculpted a statue of Cupid for the banker Jacopo Galli. Trace of this exemplary statue from the artist’s youth in Florence seemed to have been lost until the spectacular announcement of its discovery in New York in 1996. Was this enigmatically charming young Florentine incontestably the work of Michelangelo? This book examines the question and invites readers to form their own opinion.
