MICHELANGELO: The Complete Paintings, Sculptures:

FRANK ZÖLLNER & C. THOENES    Book Number: 81174    Product format: Hardback

Before reaching the tender age of 30, Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564) had already sculpted Pietà and David, two of the most famous sculptures in the entire history of art. As a sculptor, painter, draftsman and architect, the achievements of this Italian master are unique. No artist before or after him has ever produced such a vast, multifaceted, and wide-ranging oeuvre. This fresh Taschen edition traces Michelangelo's ascent to the cultural élite of the Renaissance. Ten richly illustrated chapters cover the artist's paintings, sculptures and architecture, including a close analysis of the artist's tour de force frescoes in the Sistine Chapel. Full-page reproductions and enlarged details allow readers to appreciate the finest details in the artist's repertoire in close-up, while the book's biographical essay considers Michelangelo's solitary nature, his thirst for money and commissions, his immense wealth, and his skill as a property investor. 5½" x 7.7", 800 pages. New from Taschen.
