'The fresh edition of this magisterial, engrossing study of Michelangelo as “prototype of the modern self-expressive artist” is very welcome. Shorn of its drawings section (a minefield of controversial attributions), it’s more manageably sized and priced, beautifully designed, and incorporates some new images, while Taschen quality remains supreme'. - FT

A landmark study of Michelangelo tracing the extraordinary depth and breadth of his work

Before reaching the tender age of 30, Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564) had already sculpted Pieta and David, two of the most famous sculptures in the entire history of art. As a sculptor, painter, draftsman, and architect, the achievements of this Italian master are unique-no artist before or after him has ever produced such a vast, multifaceted, and wide-ranging oeuvre. This fresh TASCHEN edition traces Michelangelo's ascent to the cultural elite of the Renaissance.

Ten richly illustrated chapters cover the artist's paintings, sculptures, and architecture, including a close analysis of the artist's tour de force frescoes in the Sistine Chapel. Full-page reproductions and enlarged details allow readers to appreciate the finest details in the artist's repertoire, while the book's biographical essay considers Michelangelo's more personal traits and circumstances, such as his solitary nature, his thirst for money and commissions, his immense wealth, and his skill as a property investor.
