Description - Michelangelo Sculptor by Christina Acidini Luchinat

There can be no doubt that Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564) was one of the greatest and most versatile artists of all time. Because of the greatness of his work, Michelangelo, both as an artist and as a man, has been the subject of numerous studies by the world's leading art historians. There is not a single book currently available that, basing itself on the most recent studies of Michelangelo, treats the artist's entire sculptural output. This book is intended to fill this gap, dealing with the whole of his sculptural output. Thanks to the texts written by Cristina Acidini Luchinat, an internationally renowned art historian, and to the pictures taken by Aurelio Amendola, one of the most outstanding photographers specialising in sculpture, is unique and exhaustive, taking into account the most recent international studies: the result is a beautifully produced, high-quality volume.
