PREFACE:

.....To write worthily of so supreme a world-genius as was Michael Angelo is given to few. But to one who, since his earliest appreciation for what is greatest in art, has ever revered that mighty master, it may be allowed to add a tribute of homage by this little monograph to Michael Angelo Buonarroti.
If further preface is needed, I perhaps cannot do better than give the following words written to me by the veteran artist, G. F. Watts, RA., O.M., on returning the proofs which he had kindly read.
Ronald Sutherland Gower.
"July 24, 1903.
