Episode 6: Michelangelo / Ray
Reflections: Then & Now

Michelangelo’s David is an epic piece of art both in scale and execution and yet it is also imbued with a sense of psychological anxiety. Meanwhile, Charles Ray’s enigmatic sculpture ‘Boy with Frog’ depicts a different, unsettling sort of power. Both artists use the tradition of classical sculpture to explore moments of great emotional complexity.
