Contrary to popular opinion, Michelangelo was not just a painter of ceilings and the maker of large-sized statues. Less accessible, yet perhaps as brilliant, are hundreds of pages of his drawings, sketches, doodles, marginal notes, memos, letters, and poetry. Michelangelo: A Life on Paper introduces readers to Renaissance treasures that they almost certainly have not previously seen. Author Leonard Barkan pays particular attention to the artist's intriguing interplay of words and visual images. A breathtaking gift book compilation of unseen masterpieces.
