Michelangelo : a life on paper by Leonard Barkan Book 6 editions published between and in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide Michelangelo is best known for great artistic achievements, but overlooked is the sheets composed with his own words.

This book will examine this intriguing interplay of words and images, providing insight into his life and work as never before. The young Michelangelo by Michael Hirst Book 11 editions published in in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide "Making and Meaning: The Young Michelangelo is the fullest account ever made of Michelangelo's early work - as a painter as well as a sculptor - during the period of his first stay in Rome. This was a crucial five years in the artist's life when he created, among other works, the marble Bacchus now in the Bargello, Florence, and the celebrated Pieta in St Peter's, Rome, and, as Hirst shows, also began his painting of the Entombment now in the National Gallery, London.
It was during these years in Rome, Hirst argues, that he probably painted another work in the National Gallery Collection, the Madonna and Child with Saint John and Angels, better known for the last years as the Manchester Madonna, which Hirst concludes is entirely the work of Michelangelo and not, as has been thought, of an associate. Included in the discussion is Michelangelo's slightly later Doni Tondo in the Uffizi, Florence, his only completed panel painting and one of the most perfect of his works.
Dunkerton also looks back to the paintings by Ghirlandaio and his workshop in which Michelangelo was trained. Her illuminating text helps us to understand how Michelangelo executed these two familiar but relatively little-studied paintings and also to envisage the startling finished appearance probably conceived by the artist.

Michelangelo : the drawings of a genius by Achim Gnann Book 9 editions published in in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide Overview: Michelangelo's drawings endowed human physique with an expressive musculature that remains to be rivaled in its feeling for corporeal articulation.
His drawings of male nudes in particular, fraught as they are with tempestuous longing, project both tension and pliancy, and a compelling sense of health in the exertions and torque of bodies; he was also readily able to bring contrary qualities of grace and swiftness to depictions of women and cherubim. With over color plates and extensive contextualizing scholarship, Michelangelo: The Drawings of a Genius is the most complete treatment of this work ever published, and thus constitutes a publication of great importance.
Masterpieces from the world's finest museums are gathered here, from the early studies for the "Battle of Cascina" and the studies for the Sistine Chapel frescoes, to the drawings for the tomb of Julius II, the Medici tombs, the drawings for Tommaso de' Cavalieri and the later crucifixion scenes; also addressed are those works whose authenticity has been subject to debate.
Works by other artists, done after the master's sketches, further illuminate the enormous influence of Michelangelo's art. Painter, sculptor, poet, architect and engineer, Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni was both dauntingly prolific and relentlessly innovative in output. He sculpted two of his greatest works, the "Pieta" and "David," before he turned 30, and created two of the world's best-known paintings on the ceiling and walls of the Sistine Chapel in Rome--the creation scenes from "Genesis" and "The Last Judgment.

Seizing on clues found in hundreds of contemporary documents, many in the artist's own hand, a scholar-detective redefines Michelangelo from his earliest relationships to the days of his heroic labor on the Sistine Chapel. In James Beck's account, three men perceived and helped shape Michelangelo's creative powers. His stern father, Lodovico, instilled in him a rigorous work ethic. Their relationship, however, would be defined by bitterness: Lodovico longed for his son to train for a lucrative occupation, perhaps as a merchant or a lawyer, vigorously opposing Michelangelo's desire to become a painter.
Even after Michelangelo achieved fame, he wrote Lodovico that "all the difficulties I have undergone, I always did for your love.
In his late twenties, Michelangelo began his third crucial alliance, this time with the recently elected Pope Julius II, in Rome.
