The Young Michelangelo: The Artist in Rome, 1496-1501 and Michelangelo as a Painter on Panel: Making and Meaningby Michael Hirst, Jill Dunkerton
Michelangelo's first stay in Rome was a crucial period in his artistic production, a time when he created the life-sized marble sculptures Bacchus and the celebrated Piet� and worked on at least two important paintings now in the National Gallery, London-the Entombment and the Manchester Madonna. In this handsome book Michael Hirst presents the first coherent narrative of these years in Rome, and his perceptive comparison of the paintings and sculpture is supported by Jill Dunkerton's lucid technical description of the making of the two National Gallery pictures. Published to accompany a major exhibition at the National Gallery in October.
