I worked on the exhibition graphics for this exhibition. I am trying to wangle some free tickets, fingers crossed!!

Heh. Rebecca cheer up - you've got some kick ass stuff over there in the states - and dont complain - there was a rubens drawing exhibition on a while back at the met was it not?! But it is a shame seeing as rubens and michelangelo are two of your favs - at the very least you could buy the book?? There was only a room of rubens drawings in london - studies of Laocoon (sp) - and some copies rubens did of michelangelo. I looked at those drawings for ages - really stunning. I cant understand how anybody cant be bowled over by those drawings.

I dunno if i'll have the time/money for this one - i'll have to see.... i'll let you know what its like if i do go.....

Im sure it wouldent be too expensive if you booked your flight much in advance rebecca? heh.


Velazquez is on later this year also..... october!

MarcoJ,

Sweet! I hope you do get free tickets!

Gavin,

Lol, thanks, I will definitely be buying the book...good books with Drawings are hard to find, and Michelangelo left precious few for us to ogle over.

Hope you'll be able to make it!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

rebecca - just in case - and for anyone else

i think this is the book that the british museum are selling

http://www.britishmuseum.co.uk/Product.aspx?ID=1036

there is also a book on michelangelo and raphael drawings by the curator of the ashmolean museum in oxford - it looks not bad and is only around ten pounds.

Cool

If anyone wants to go, be sure to book ahead online. They have timed entry, which is a good thing actually. But when I went there spontaneously, I would have had to wait for 2 1/2 hours to get in, so I just got the book, which is pretty nice though.

RabbitRun,

Glad to hear you enjoyed the exhibit!

If anyone is interested, there is an entertaining fictional biography about Michelangelo that is pretty well~known:

The Agony and the Ecstasy : A Biographical Novel of Michelangelo (Paperback)
by Irving Stone


Cheers,

Hi guys, just to let you know, I went to this a couple of days ago and it was amazing, I got the book you mentioned. I don't have time to write a review right now, but I probably will tommorrow.

I would recommend it to all of you.

Cheers,
Jack

Looking forward to seeing your review, Jack!

In somewhat related news, it looks like I'll finally be going to see the Body Worlds exhibition next week.
