Book Summary

This beautiful book gathers together Michelangelo's work, both the famous and the lesser known, to create a vivid portrait of the artist's life and career. Visually spectacular, it features more than 150 illustrations of his artworks, including the Pietà, David, Moses and the Sistine Chapel ceiling.

William E. Wallace's insightful narrative describes a career that spanned the glories of the Italian Renaissance to the first stirrings of the counter-reformation. It is enhanced with rare documents from Michelangelo's personal papers, such as contracts for his works and his plans for the Sistine Chapel.
