A youth beckoning (recto)
Members' price from *
A nude young man, looking to the right, beckoning. This is generally considered to be a study for 'Battle of Cascina', although it does not occur in the best known copy of this lost work, Bastiano da Sangallo's grisaille painting at Holkham Hall, Norfolk.The pose is a free adaptation of the antique sculpture known as the 'Apollo Belvedere', the classical poise of the marble replaced by an unstable sense of motion. During Michelangelo's first period in Rome, 1496-1501, the sculpture was in the gardens of S. Pietro in Vincoli, the seat of Cardinal Giuliano della Rovere, subsequently being installed in the new Cortile del Belvedere after Giuliano's election as Pope Julius II in 1503.
Artist: Michelangelo (1475-1564), A youth beckoning, c. 1504. (c) The Trustees of the British Museum
