OT: Young Saint John the Baptist, by Michelangelo


As of today until 28th June, 2015 you’ll be able to see at The Prado Museum The young Saint John the Baptist (ca. 1495-1496) by Michelangelo, which has been recently restored. For additional information click here and here to read the full story. From then onwards, the sculpture will returned to its original setting, the Holy Chapel of the Saviour in Úbeda, the land of my ancestors.

  1. Thank you for posting this lovely image! I hope to get to Ubeda to see it. My husband says it looks more like a Donatello.
