One of the outstanding figures in the history of art, Michelangelo's towering talents dominate the high Renaissance. From the age of thirteen, when his father reluctantly allowed him to join the workshop of Domenico Ghirlandaio as an apprentice, up to his death at the age of eighty-nine, his life was dedicated to the arts of painting, sculpture and architecture. In each field he has left incomparable masterpieces: among them the astonishing frescoes in the Sistine Chapel, which recent restoration has revealed to modern eyes in an entirely new light; sculptures like David and the Pietà; and St. Peter's in Rome. Michelangelo's biographer, Vasari, wrote that 'in his passion for the arts, Michelangelo triumphs, whatever the difficulties may be'. He devoted his prodigious energies to the service of the Florentine Republic, the Medicis and the ruling popes who gave him his numerous commissions. Although his work was entirely carried out in Italy, almost from the beginning it transcended national boundaries through the circulation of engravings of his art. In this book, which vividly reproduces Michelangelo's work--and particularly the Sistine frescoes in their newly-restored glory--Pierluigi de Vecchi introduces us to the genius of an artist whom many consider to be the greatest of all time.--Book jacket flap

Il volume è dedicato alla rappresentazione del soggetto storico nei dipinti dal medioevo al Novecento. Autorevoli contributi accolti nel volume permettono di seguire l'evoluzione di questo genere, le cui origini affondano nelle rappresentazioni belliche dell'antico Egitto e del Medioriente, per poi confluire, attraverso le pitture trionfali e narrative della civiltà greco romana, nel variegato repertorio artistico medievale. All'iniziale intento celebrativo e commemorativo delle immagini storiche dell'antichità, si sommano nel corso dei secoli valenze politiche, morali ed educative
