Michelangelo devised an extraordinary number of figural poses throughout his career, from the soldiers in the Battle of Cascina to the ignudi on the Sistine Ceiling and the damned in the Last Judgement. This talk will consider how he used drawing to come up with so many figures, what they shared, and how his approach compared to that of contemporaries such as Leonardo da Vinci and Raphael.
