This major new biography recounts the extraordinary life of one of the most creative figures in Western culture, weaving together the multiple threads of Michelangelo′s life and times with a brilliant analysis of his greatest works. The author retraces Michelangelo′s journey from Rome to Florence, explores his changing religious views and examines the complicated politics of patronage in Renaissance Italy. The psychological portrait of Michelangelo is constantly foregrounded, depicting with great conviction a tormented man, solitary and avaricious, burdened with repressed homosexuality and a surplus of creative enthusiasm. Michelangelo′s acts of self–representation and his pivotal role in constructing his own myth are compellingly unveiled. Antonio Forcellino is one of the world′s leading authorities on Michelangelo and an expert art historian and restorer. He has been involved in the restoration of numerous masterpieces, including Michelangelo′s Moses. He combines his firsthand knowledge of Michelangelo′s work with a lively literary style to draw the reader into the very heart of Michelangelo′s genius.

Adrian Stokes was one of the twentieth century's finest and most discriminating writers on art. Of over twenty works of art criticism, Michelangelo was considered by Lawrence Gowing to be the most complete he ever wrote, presenting an understanding of the great artist that no one subsequently could afford to ignore. Stokes brings to bear in this work not only twenty-five years' study and appreciation of Italian Renaissance art and of aesthetics, but also a unique psychological perspective, as he explains in his introduction, which enables him to uncover the depths of the artist's personality. The subtlety of feeling and profound knowledge of sculpture which Sir Herbert Read admired in Stokes's work is also combined with a literary style perfected through his own poetry and criticism. Presenting a unique survey of his subject's literary as well as his artistic legacy, Stokes succeeds, as no other has before or since, in his aim of bringing Michelangelo's greatness into nearer view.

Michelangelo is best known for great artistic achievements, but overlooked is the sheets composed with his own words. Here we can read the artist's marginal notes to his masterpieces; workaday memos to assistants and pupils; poetry and letters; and personal expressions of ambition and despair. This book will examine this intriguing interplay of words and images, providing insight into his life and work as never before.--[book jacket]

Michelangelo Buonarroti 127 Masterpieces

This Art Book with Foreword and annotated reproductions by Maria Tsaneva contains 127 selected masterpieces of Michelangelo Buonarroti. Michelangelo Buonarroti applied a colossal influence on the development of Western art. He is considered a nominee for the title of the archetypal Renaissance man, along with Leonardo da Vinci. Michelangelo was the first Western artist whose biography was published while he was alive. Giorgio Vasari proposed that he was the high point of all artistic achievement of the Renaissance. In his era Michelangelo was characterized as Il Divino ("the divine one"). A number of his works in painting, sculpture, and architecture rank among the most famous in existence. One of the qualities most respected by his contemporaries was his "terribilità", a sense of greatness, which raises admiration, and that's driving the next generation of artists to imitate Michelangelo by trying one very passionate and very personal style, leading them to the mannerisms.
