After focusing on Michelangelo you will admire works by other famous artists such as Botticelli and Jean de Boulogne.Â

Have a close encounter with these timeless works of art and get the inside story of the life and times of this consummate artist.
The Academy also houses an important collection of paintings from the 14th to the 16th century, plaster casts of famous statues dating back to the 19th century, and impressive holdings of Russian icons.
