Art critic and historian Leo Steinberg from Hunter College lectured on "The Deluge," Michelangelo’s representation of the Flood in the Sistine Chapel in Rome.  A formidable and sometime controversial expert on Michelangelo’s life and work, Steinberg placed “the drowned son in the Deluge on the Sistine Ceiling” among “Michelangelo’s spiritual self-portraits.”     Leo Steinberg, “The Line of Fate in Michelangelo’s Painting,” Critical Inquiry, vol. 6, no. 3 (Spring, 1980)
