Mute Poetry, Speaking Pictures, Hardback (December 2012)
Why do painters sometimes wish they were poets - and why do poets sometimes wish they were painters? What happens when Rembrandt spells out Hebrew in the sky or Poussin spells out Latin on a tombstone? What happens when Virgil, Ovid, or Shakespeare suspend their plots to describe a fictitious painting? This title answers these questions.
Michelangelo, Hardback (October 2010)» View all books by Leonard Barkan
Michelangelo is best known for great artistic achievements such as the Sistine ceiling, the Piet, and the dome of St Peter's. He not only filled hundreds of sheets of paper with drawings, sketches, and doodles, but also, composed his own words. This book examines this interplay of words and images, providing insight into his life and work.
