This oversized book includes absolutely stunning photographs of all of Michelangelo's works: sculptures, frescoes and architecture. It gives the reader a much better view of say the Sistine chapel ceiling, than if he or she looked at it in person. In fact, taking such photos must have called for much equipment and organization.
The well written and pertinent texts are essentially chronological and focus on the links between Michelangelo's life events and his artistic production. They definitely provide an excellent sequential perspective on his work but are largely silent on technical aspects. Were those huge frescoes made from full size sketches? Who were the models? How many assistants were employed and what exactly did they do? Why did Michelangelo apparently refrain from any canvas painting, contrary to Leonardo da Vinci or Raphael, his contemporaries?
Despite these shortcomings (and its sheer size and weight that make it hard to hold as you read!), this book is very strongly recommended to all , even those who do not have a particular in Renaissance Italian art.
Great close-ups of the frescoes from the Sistene Chapel ..
The book has far exceeded my expectations.
I bought it for my wife: she loves it!
