Description

 Michelangelo was a genius of unrivaled virtuosity.  Before reaching the age of 30, Michelangelo Buonarroti  (1475–1564) had already sculpted Pietà and David, two of the most famous  sculptures in the entire history of art. As a sculptor, painter,  draftsman, and architect, the achievements of this Italian master are  unique—no artist before or after him has ever produced such a vast,  multifaceted, and wide-ranging œuvre.  Full-page reproductions and enlarged details allow readers to appreciate  the finest details in the artist’s repertoire, while the book’s  biographical essay considers Michelangelo’s more personal traits and  circumstances, such as his solitary nature, his thirst for money and  commissions, his immense wealth, and his skill as a property investor. 

Part of the Bibliotheca Universalis series.
