Michelangelo: The Art Newspaper's editor talks about a British treasure

Heni Talks: Alison Cole examines the Taddei Tondo—the only marble sculpture by the Italian master in the UK

From Heni Talks

Michelangelo’s most well-known works exist on a colossal scale, from his formidable statue of David to the High Renaissance frescoes of the Sistine Chapel. Yet, his art could also be tender and lyrical, dwelling upon the inherent tensions of the human condition. The art historian and editor of The Art Newspaper Alison Cole examines one such example, the Taddei Tondo (around 1504-05)—the only marble sculpture by Michelangelo in a British collection. Cole provides a rich insight into the artist’s life, influences and unique approach to sculpture.
