Presented by Neil Macgregor, head of the British museum, this documentary illustrates the finest works from three outstanding collections of his drawings in the British museum, the Ashmolean Museum and the Teyler Museum in Haarlem. Michelangelo was one of the most creative and admired artists of the Italian Renaissance, famous for his work as a sculptor, painter, architect and poet. As it is impossible to move his greatest works, his genius can only be appreciated through his work as a draughtsman. In the viewing of his drawings, this programme traces the whole of Michelangelo's creative life.
