Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Perhaps best-known for his unforgettable statue David, Michelangelo Buonarroti was one of the greatest Renaissance artists to ever live. With a career spanning over 70 years, he created many of Italy's artistic treasures. Although his chief love was sculpting, Michelangelo was a painter and architect as well, creating such works as the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel and a palace in the center of Rome. Distilling the key points of this prolific artist's life, Langley offers an accessible biography that introduces young readers to a Renaissance master. Helpful sidebars in blue provide additional information such as historical references, definitions, and quotes from Michelangelo's contemporaries. Photos of the artists' work, as well as portraits and paintings from other Renaissance artists provide a visual history to accompany the text. This book fits well in the curricula of both the art and history classroom. 2003, Raintree, Ages 12 up.
