Description
Information
Michelangelo (1475-1564) ranks among the very greatest of sculptors, painters and architects, and has often been portrayed as a prickly, solitary genius. Yet he counted as friends people ranging from humble villagers to courtiers, cardinals, princes and popes. He struggled constantly with troublesome relations and he always remained open to the political and religious upheavals, technological innovations and new horizons which indelibly made his era so tumultuous. In this vivid and compelling biography, George Bull draws on his deep knowledge of the period - and dozens of hitherto untranslated and inaccessible documents - to depict a Michelangelo in the round, and brings to his narrative an exceptional feel for the Italian Renaissance.'The final picture of Michelangelo the man is suitably three-dimensional and constructed entirely of evidence as strong as Tuscan marble' - Martin Gayford in the Sunday Telegraph'A gripping new biography - Bull uses a mass of contemporary eye
