In Hiding – The Story Behind the Painting

In Hiding is my interpretation and depiction of a Michelangelo sketch he created on a cellar wall underneath the Medici Chapel in Florence, Italy, while he was in hiding from Roman officials.

I was fortunate to view his drawings and this space while studying Renaissance art and architecture in Florence, Italy in 1990.
