Item description for The Little Book of Michelangelo (Little Book of . . .) by Helene Sueur, Paul Joannides, Yves Pauwels, Frederique Lemerle & Amanda Bradley...
A painter, on panel and in fresco, a sculptor, architect, and poet, Michelangelo Buonarroti was the first artist recognized by his contemporaries as a genius. The Little Book of Michelangelo provides an accessible introduction to the life and work of this most influential of artists. A biographical essay sets the scene, and the handy alphabetical entries that follow, accompanied by some 100 illustrations, include detailed commentary on his best-known works such as the colossal marble sculpture of David, and--the world's single greatest fresco--the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.
