Overview

You've heard of the New Math, well this is the New History. With the best of magazine graphics, complete textual authority, and a definite attitude - this is treatment fit for a genius. In addition to historical background about Michelangelo's sculpting style and the painting of the Sistine Chapel, you will learn some facts that just might surprise you, such as what his contemporaries really thought about him, who does what in the sculpting studio, and how corpses contributed to the advancement of art. Discovering the man and his age through vibrant two-page spreads, timelines, detailed maps, and "interviews," you'll learn about Michelangelo's early years, the superstar artists of the day, how to keep popes happy, the proper usage of marble, and much more. Each two-page spread thoroughly covers its subject and also dovetails with the rest of the round out the picture. Art, architecture, food, fashion, history, politics, people, places, literature, and customs - it's all here as you've never seen it before. After you check out this title, other books on the Renaissance will look like ancient history.
