Free Michelangelo podcast today from the MET

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is offering a free podcast on the fascinating topic of the first known painting by Michelangelo Buonarroti.

According to the MET:

Keith Christiansen and Michael Gallagher of the Met discuss their
research and conservation of the first known painting by Michelangelo believed to have been created when he was twelve or thirteen
years old (circa 1487-88). Recently acquired by the Kimbell Art Museum,
the painting The Torment of Saint Anthony underwent
conservation and technical examination at the Met, leading to this new
attribution. This podcast accompanies the special exhibition Michelangelo’s First Painting, on view now through September 7.

The podcast may be found by clicking the museum’s media link. If you don’t have an audio player installed you can still download a transcript.
