Michelangelo and the Ideal Body

Ueno's National Musem of Western Art is putting the spotlight on Michelangelo and his works on the body, starting off with his famed marble sculptures. In addition to two of the master's marble sculptures there will also be works from the Renaissance period, plus exhibits from the Roman and Grecian eras which served as inspiration. That includes a reproduction of the ancient Greek sculpture known as Laocoön and His Sons, which had a great effect on the Italian Renaissance art movement and was considered the ideal of beauty by many. Unusual for Japan, you'll even be allowed to take photos of the latter.
