The Rondanini Pietà is a marble sculpture that Michelangelo worked on from michelangelo. Ediz. inglese PDF until the last days of his life, in 1564. Several sources indicate that there were actually three versions, with this one being the last. This final sculpture revisited the theme of the Virgin Mary mourning over the emaciated body of the dead Christ, which he had first explored in his Pietà of 1499.
Författare: Bruno Contardi.
La presente pubblicazione è in lingua inglese ed è dedicata a Michelangelo, con un profilo sull’artista e una nuova interpretazione della sua opera. La perenne attualità di Michelangelo attinge ad un principio di contraddizione risolto nella potenza creativa. L’idea scaturisce dalla pietra grezza, l’amore si sublima nell’eros platonico e in una tormentata religiosità. L’astratta sintesi di un’architettura fatta di pieni e di vuoti ha il suo complemento in un geniale senso analitico del particolare decorativo.
The Rondanini Pietà was begun before The Deposition of Christ was completed in 1555. In his dying days, Michelangelo hacked at the marble block until only the dismembered right arm of Christ survived from the sculpture as originally conceived. It has also been suggested that the sculpture should not be considered unfinished, but a work in a continuous process of being made visible by the viewer as he or she moves around to see it from multiple angles. South African visual artist Marlene Dumas based her 2012 painting Homage to Michelangelo on the Rondanini Pietà. The final period: Last Judgment, frescoes of the Pauline Chapel, last Pietàs.
