Pub. Date: 12/28/2004
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Five American art historians analyze the famous Renaissance painting in the Sistine Chapel at the Vatican, in many cases comparing the final work with his drawings for it. Their topics include the historical and religious circumstances of the painting; the hidden clue to the resurrection of the body; painting, criticism, and Michelangelo's Last Judgment in the age of the Counter-Reformation; and the Cappela Paolina frescoes.
