Pieta by Michelangelo Buonarroti
In the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo, in Florence, Italy.
This Pieta is Michelangelo’s penultimate sculpture. In 1555, upon finding a fault in the marble, the elderly Michelangelo destroyed the sculpture.
In 1671 Cosimo III de’Medici purchased the reconstructed sculpture, and placed it in the crypt of the Basilica of San Lorenzo. In 1722 it was transferred to the Florence Duomo.
