Michelangelo: trade mark

the Looniverse


Academy Hall

Marble lost by Michelangelo

The Gallery of the Academy of Fine Arts, Florence, houses his famous David.
You have seen scores of copies and photographs of that one. Below a real treat:
These blocks of marble, found in a quarry, had been worked upon by the only sculptor I really like.



An illustration of the hoary cliché that there's a statue locked up in every stone.

The negatives were made in 1978 with a Contax RTS on 35mm Eastmancolor Negative ECNII, which caused me much grief.
