Michelangelo was only 26 years old in 1501, but he was already the most famous and best paid artist in his days. He accepted the challenge with enthusiasm to sculpt a large scale David and worked constantly for over two years to create one of his most breathtaking masterpieces of gleaming white marble.

Most of his paintings in the United States are the surviving fragments of larger works, but this one is nearly intact and was greatly admired in Boston.
