Product Description:

Renaissance man in extremis Michelangelo in pursuit of the beautiful and sublime Italian-born Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni (1475 1564) was a tormented prodigiously talented and God-fearing Renaissance man. His manifold achievements in painting sculpture architecture poetry and engineering combined body spirit and God into visionary masterpieces that changed art history forever. Famed biographer Giorgio Vasari considered him the pinnacle of Renaissance achievement. His peers called him simply Il Divino ( the divine one ). This book provides the essential introduction to Michelangelo with all the awe-inspiring masterpieces and none of the queues and crowds. With vivid illustration and accessible texts we explore the artist s extraordinary figuration and celebrated style of terribilita (momentous grandeur) which allowed human and biblical drama to exist in compelling scale and fervor. Through the power hubs of Renaissance Italy we take in his major commissions and phenomenal capacity for compositional schemes whether the famous Medici library in Florence or the extraordinary 500-square-meter ceiling (1508 1512) in the Vatican s Sistine Chapel. From the towering David to the aching grief and faith of The Pieta and the vivid drama of the Sistine Chapel s Last Judgment this is a succinct dependable reference to a true giant of art history and to some of the most famous artworks in the world.About the series: Each book in TASCHEN s Basic Art series features: a detailed chronological summary of the life and oeuvre of the artist covering his or her cultural and historical importance a concise biography approximately 100 illustrations with explanatory captions'
