Michelangelo - The Complete Sculpture, Painting, Architecture brings the artist and his remarkable work to life with particular clarity. In a rich weave of images and text, each chapter offers an intimate look at the artist's expression in a different medium. This volume includes beautiful photographs of Micheangelo's works but here also are never before seen details of his sculpture and architecture that invite us to linger. The black-and-white photographs printed in lush doutones that add depth, show in the marks of the chisel, the hand of Michangelo at work - the rough but deliberate strokes of a man struggling to express himself in an unyielding and unforgiving medium.

Hey, eveyone! This is a student from the Oglethorpe County High School. I have also read, and found out alot about the Sistene Chapel, I really did enjoy learning about it. It was boring at first, then it got to getting good, so I really got into the paints, and the motions, and the life like creatures!
