Artist's Life: Michelangelo Paperback / softback
This is a beautifully illustrated and detailed look at the life and works of one of the world's most exceptional artists ever.
Often considered a rival to Da Vinci for the title of archetypal Renaissance man, Michelangelo was not only a prolific and talented sculptor - by the time he was thirty, he had already sculpted two of his best-known and most famous works, "David" and the "Pieta" - but also a renowned artist and architect.
His scenes from Genesis on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel are some of the most influential works in the history of Western art, and his design for the dome of St.
Peter's Basilica in Rome revolutionized classical architecture.
This wonderfully illustrated volume, packed with information and insights, is fascinating exploration into the life and works of Michelangelo - one of the world's most influential and important artists.
