Now comes the news that this exhibition has attracted 10,868 advanced bookings, a new record for the British Museum.

I have found that one of the most celebrated works by Michelangleo in the British Museum is probably a copy by another artist. I explain why in an essay on my research of the Michelangelo Drawings exhibition.
