You Masterclass Expert:
Dr Alan Pascuzzi PhD is a leading Michelangelo expert, published scholar, and a master painter and sculptor. His artist’s studio is across the river in the center of Florence in the artisan’s quarter San Niccolò. He is known as Michelangelo’s ‘Last Apprentice’ due to his painstaking reproductions of 135 Michelangelo drawings.
A Fulbright scholar to Florence, he obtained his PhD from Washington University with specializations in Greek and Roman sculpture and Italian Renaissance art. He has been teaching Renaissance art techniques to students for more than a 20 years.
As a professional artist, he has several frescoes, paintings and sculptures around the world, including in the centre of Florence, the rest of Europe and even China, the US and Australia!
You can find him in TV documentaries on Renaissance art, including the BBC’s ‘The Color Blue’ and ‘Inside the Mind of Leonardo’, and ’60 Minutes’. Recently, an exhibition of his sculptures, The Ten Madonnas, opened at the Vatican, followed by in Florence. He has just published his first book, ‘Becoming Michelangelo,’ which deals with the early drawings of Michelangelo. He lives in Florence, Italy.
