Hailed as a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition, the Metropolitan Museum of Art will unveil the largest showcase of Michelangelo works in the museum’s history. Spanning his lifetime, the vast collection will feature 150 of the Renaissance master’s works.

A unique combination of high profile pieces and early works, the collection will include:
- Torment of Saint Anthony - his earliest painting
- The Young Archer - a mysterious sculpture
- A drawing for his final fresco at the Vatican
- His carved wood model of a chapel
