Michelangelo devised an extraordinary number of figural poses throughout his career, from the soldiers in the Battle of Cascina to the ignudi on the Sistine Chapel ceiling and the damned in the Last Judgment. Cammy Brothers, associate professor of visual studies at Northeastern University, considers how the artist used drawing to create so many figures, what they shared, and how his approach compared to that of contemporaries such as Leonardo da Vinci and Raphael.
