Sunday, March 16, 2003 – Sunday, June 08, 2003
The Medici family ruled Florence for over three centuries and ranks among Italy’s most famous and influential families. Magnificenza! The Medici, Michelangelo and the Art of Late Renaissance Florence is the first exhibition ever in North America to examine the cultural achievements of the first four Medici grand dukes of Tuscany during the period from 1537 to 1631. It also explores their relationship with Michelangelo and his extraordinary artistic legacy to Florentine art during this period.
