Father God’s Louche Body Posing (Michelangelo Drawing)


I’ll be posting some comments and what were for me highlights at the big show of Michelangelo drawings at the Met, but for now I wanted to share these two, included in a separate section on studies for the Sistine Chapel ceiling, modelling God-the-Father’s rather louche torso in repose and, of course, that finger.
