Books By Author Michael W. Cole
Leonardo, Michelangelo, and the Art of the Figure, Hardback (January 2015)
In late 1504 and early 1505, Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo Buonarroti were both at work on commissions they had received to paint murals in Florence's City Hall. This book looks again at the one moment when Leonardo and Michelangelo worked side by side.
New History of Italian Renaissance Art, Hardback (January 2012)
Introduces Italian Renaissance art. This book tells the story of art in the great centres of Rome, Florence and Venice while profiling a range of other cities and sites throughout Italy. It presents the classic canon of Renaissance painting and sculpture, offering coverage of architecture, decorative and domestic arts, and print media.
Ambitious Form, Hardback (December 2010)
Describes the transformation of Italian sculpture during the neglected half-century between the death of Michelangelo and the rise of Bernini. This book follows the Florentine careers of three major sculptors - Giambologna, Bartolomeo Ammanati, and Vincenzo Danti - as they negotiated the politics of the Medici court and eyed one another's work.
Idol in the Age of Art, Hardback (February 2009)» View all books by Michael W. Cole
The idol has traditionally been regarded as the anti-image, the thing in opposition to which 'good' art was defined. This volume shows how both its embrace and its consequences expanded in unprecedented ways in the years after 1500.
