Publisher's summary : Michelangelo is universally recognized as one of the greatest artists of all time, yet his life-which spanned the Italian Renaissance to the first stirrings of the Counter-Reformation-continues to be obscured in myth. The Treasures of Michelangelo presents an original overview of the famed artist, drawing from his numerous poems, artwork, and letters. The wealth of information presented here offers a fresh perspective on his life and his relationships. Augmented by facsimiles of 15 documents from his personal papers and other archives, this beautiful package paints a vivid portrait of an exceptional yet deeply human individual and the remarkable times in which he lived.
