It was Michelangelo's talent and imagination that created the Pieta, the famous statue of David, and the Sistine Chapel's ceilings. What was his life like before he became famous? Readers discover the story of Michelangelo Buonarroti, a man who sculpted with materials others abandoned, whose first official piece of art was really a fraud, and who hid his own likeness in many of his paintings. This artistic genius was as fascinating as he was skilled, and his life is presented to readers through engaging main text and sidebars, annotated quotes from art historians, and examples of his most famous works.

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]

At the turn of the 16th century, Italy was a turbulent territory made up of independent states, each at war with or intriguing against its neighbor. There were the proud, cultivated, and degenerate Sforzas in Milan, and in Rome, the corrupt Spanish family of the Borgia whose head, Rodrigo, ascended to St Peter's throne as Pope Alexander VI. In Florence, a golden age of culture and sophistication ended with the death of the greatest of the Medici family, Lorenzo the Magnificent, giving way to an era of uncertainty, cruelty, and religious fundamentalism. In the midst of this turmoil, there existed the greatest concentration of artists that Europe has ever known. Influenced by the rediscovery of the ancient cultures of Greece and Rome, artists and thinkers such as Botticelli and da Vinci threw off the shackles of the Middle Ages to produce one of the most creative periods in history - the Renaissance. This is the story of twelve years when war, plague, famine, and chaos made their mark on a volatile Italy, and when a young, erratic genius, Michelangelo Buonarroti, made his first great statue - the David. It was to become a symbol not only of the independence and defiance of the city of Florence but also of the tortured soul who created it. Anton Gill's Il Gigante is a wonderful history of the artist, his times, and one of his most magnificent works.

The Faun In The Garden Michelangelo And The Poetic Origins Of Italian Renaissance Art

Sequel to Barolsky's Vasari trilogy and pendant volume in particular to Michelangelo's Nose, this book continues the author's examination of the poetic imagination of Michelangelo's autobiography in relation to his art and poetry. With his usual brio, Barolsky suggests that Michelangelo's concerns with poetic origins are linked in subtle, diverse ways to the meanings of Botticelli's Primavera, Signorelli's Pan, Piero di Cosimo's Prometheus pictures, Raphael's Parnassus, and Titan's Fete Champetre. Focusing on the unexpected importance for Michelangelo of the pastoral, Barolsky illuminates the role of Ovid both in the artist's biography and in his theory and practice of art. Conceiving his book as a contribution to our understanding of poetic imagination in the age of the Renaissance, Barolsky elaborates here on his previous discussion of Renaissance, Barolsky elaborates here on his previous discussion of Renaissance biography in the tradition of Boccaccio's fables.

At thirty one, Michelangelo was considered the finest artist in Italy, perhaps the world; long before he died at almost 90 he was widely believed to be the greatest sculptor or painter who had ever lived (and, by his enemies, to be an arrogant, uncouth, swindling miser). For decade after decade, he worked near the dynamic centre of events: the vortex at which European history was changing from Renaissance to Counter Reformation. Few of his works - including the huge frescoes of the Sistine Chapel Ceiling, the marble giant David and the Last Judgment - were small or easy to accomplish. Like a hero of classical mythology - such as Hercules, whose statue he carved in his youth - he was subject to constant trials and labours. In Michelangelo Martin Gayford describes what it felt like to be Michelangelo Buonarroti, and how he transformed forever our notion of what an artist could be.

William Rimmer A Yankee Michelangelo

William Rimmer (1816-1879) has long been considered an important figure in American art. He has been mentioned in all the major surveys of nineteenth-century American art, yet this is the first book devoted solely to him since 1946, when the last major exhibition of his work was held. Directed at an educated, popular audience, the book contains information on all of Rimmer's major work and presents many new findings about his life. In spite of the many developments in American rat research in the past four decades, RImmer has remained a particularly elusive figure - hard to know and harder still to categorize within the larger context of American art and style. This book reestablishes the details of Rimmer's career and reconsiders the quality of his artistry. -- from back cover.
