Description

The drawing was identified as a preparatory study for the figure of the Cumaean Sibyl in the vault of the Sistine Chapel, the great masterpiece created by Michelangelo between 1508 and 1512. It is undoubtedly a study from life by a male model, of which Michelangelo used himself to elaborate the dynamism and the expressive form of the face. In the passage to the fresco, all that remained was to add the turban headdress that crowns the Sibyl in the fresco of the Vatican chapel. The sheet, a graphic masterpiece of the Renaissance, is a very important testimony of the artist's working method, which used drawing as a means to achieve the artistic purposes it proposed.
