Join international scholars to explore the pivotal decade of the 1490s in Florence and the formation and evolution of the young Michelangelo. Prompted by the recent loan by the French Republic to the Metropolitan Museum of the fragmentary marble statue Young Archer that many scholars attribute to Michelangelo, this symposium provides occasion to reflect on the sculpture and the confluence of dramatic forces that shaped Renaissance Florence.
