This exhibit explores The Young Archer and the confusion surrounding the sculpture. First, the exhibit delves into the question of authorship surrounding The Young Archer, as it is not universally accepted as a work by Michelangelo. There is a strong case for Michelangelo's the creator of the piece, but there is also an equally compelling argument for the sculpture as the work of another less skilled artist of the Quattrocento. The exhibit also plots The Young Archer’s movement over time.
