Newton Free Library presents Discovering Italian Renaissance Sculpture in the Newton Free Library’s Art Collection: Michelangelo and Friends

May 3 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Michelangelo’s sculptures Moses and Lorenzo de’Medici belong to the library in replicas. Join  Amy Golahny for the first in this two-part series on the library’s permanent collection of art. The discussion will place these pieces in their original context, and demonstrate Michelangelo’s powerful influence on younger sculptors in Florence such as Giambologna and his Mercury.

Amy Golahny, PhD Columbia University, is Richmond Professor Emerita of Lycoming College, Williamsport PA. She has lectured internationally, authored and edited books and articles on Rembrandt and other topics, and served as president of the Historians of Netherlandish Art.
