Michelangelo by Eugène Müntz( )

22 editions published in 2012 in 3 languages and held by 3,116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The legend of Michelangelo (1475-1564) has endured undiminished for five hundred years. Scholars like Chateaubriand, Manzoni and Rilke have seen in him a master of the renewal of Western art. Indeed, endowed with an almost superhuman creative genius, Michelangelo incarnates for us the universal man of the Italian Renaissance, and the quality and scope of his oeuvre is uncontested, not even by Leonardo da Vinci, works like his Pietà, David, and the Sistine Chapel frescoes are the proof. How was he able, in so few years, to develop the methods behind a body of work worthy of his Greek predecessors? No one has better examined the complexities of the man, the artist and the age he lived in than Eugene Müntz. His text, written in clear and pure style, is a literary work in itself, and it is accompanied here by illustrations of an exceptional quality." --Provided by Publisher
Michelangelo by Eug ene Müntz( )

14 editions published in 2011 in 4 languages and held by 2,581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The name Michelangelo instantly conjures up the Sistine Chapel, the David, the Pieta and countless other great works. In his History of Italian Painting, the French writer Stendhal remarked that, "between Greek antiquity and Michelangelo nothing exists, except more or less skilled forgeries". The work of Michelangelo has, indisputably, stood the test of time. How was he able, in so few years, to develop the methods behind a body of work worthy of his Greek predecessors? Often referred to as a superhuman and a creative genius, Michelangelo was an incomparable artist of the Italian Renaissance

"Studying nature with passion, and all the independence proper to his character, he could not fail to combine precision with liberty, and truth with beauty. It is in this final emancipation, this perfect mastery of modelling, of illumination, and of expression, this breadth and freedom, that the master's raison d'être and glory consist. Others may have struck out new paths also; but none travelled further or mounted higher than he." (Eugène Müntz)

Rafael by Eugène Müntz( )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rafael fue el artista más parecido al gran escultor Pheidias. Los griegos decían que este último no había inventado nada, pero fue capaz de llevar cada tipo de arte inventado por sus predecesores a tal cúspide, que logró alcanzar la armonía pura y perfecta. Estas palabras,?armonía pura y perfecta?, expresan, de hecho, mejor que cualquier otra, lo que Rafael llevó al arte italiano. De Perugino tomó toda la delicada gracia y sutileza de la escuela de Umbria, adquirió la fuerza y la certidumbre en Florencia, y creó un estilo basado en la fusión de las lecciones de Leonardo y de Miguel Ángel a la luz de su propio espíritu noble. Sus composiciones sobre el tema tradicional de la Virgen y el Niño les parecieron a sus contemporáneos intensamente novedosas, y sólo su gloria consagrada evita que percibamos en la actualidad su carácter original. Logró un trabajo aún más sorprendente en la composición y la realización de los frescos con los que, desde 1509, adornó las Stanze y la Loggia en el Vaticano. La cualidad de lo sublime, que Miguel Ángel alcanzó a través de su fervor y su pasión, Rafael la logró mediante un dominio del equilibrio entre la inteligencia y la sensibilidad. Una de sus obras maestras, La escuela de Atenas, fue decididamente hija de su genio: los diversos detalles, las cabezas, la suavidad del gesto, la facilidad de la composición, la vida que circula por todas las partes iluminadas son sus rasgos más característicos y admirables

Miguel Ángel by Eugène Müntz( )

4 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Miguel Ángel, como Leonardo, fue una persona con muchos talentos: escultor, arquitecto, pintor y poeta. Alcanzó la cima de la representación del movimiento muscular, que el entendía como la manifestación de la pasión. Modeló, dobló, retorció y estiró sus dibujos hasta el límite de sus posibilidades. En las obras de Miguel Ángel no hay nunca paisajes, todas las emociones, las pasiones, la humanidad de sus obras se personifican, a su modo de ver, en los cuerpos desnudos de hombres y mujeres; rara vez concibió la forma humana en actitud de inmovilidad o reposo. Miguel Ángel se hizo pintor para p

Michel-Ange (Michelangelo Buonarroti) (Caprese, 1475 - Rome, 1564) Michel-Ange, comme Léonard de Vinci, avait plusieurs cordes à son arc et était à la fois sculpteur, architecte, peintre et poète. Il porta à leur apothéose le mouvement musculaire et l'effort, équivalents plastiques de la passion, à ses yeux. Il façonna son dessin, le poussant jusqu'aux limites extrêmes des possibilités de son âme tourmentée. Il n'y a aucun paysage dans la peinture de Michel-Ange. Toutes les émotions, toutes les passions, toutes les pensées de l'humanité furent personnifiées dans les corps nus des hommes et des femmes. Il ne les conçut presque jamais dans l'immobilité ou le repos. Michel-Ange devint peintre pour exprimer à travers un matériau plus malléable ce qui animait sa nature titanesque, ce que son imagination de sculpteur voyait, mais que la sculpture lui refusait. Ainsi cet admirable sculpteur devint le réateur des décorations les plus lyriques et les plus épiques jamais vues dans l'histoire de la peinture : les fresques de la chapelle Sixtine au Vatican. La profusion des inventions disséminées sur cette vaste surface est merveilleuse. Ce sont en tout 343 personnages principaux qui sont représentés avec une variété d'expressions prodigieuse, plusieurs de taille colossale, à côté de figures plus secondaires introduites pour leur effet décoratif. Le créateur de ce vaste plan n'avait que trente-quatre ans lorsqu'il s'attela au projet. Michel-Ange nous oblige à élargir notre conception du beau. Pour les Grecs, le critère était la beauté physique, mais Michel-Ange, sauf dans quelques exceptions, comme sa peinture d'Adam sur le plafond de la chapelle Sixtine, et ses sculptures de la Pietà, ne prêtait que peu d'attention à la beauté. Bien que maîtrisant parfaitement l'anatomie et les lois de la composition, il osait les ignorer toutes deux, si nécessaire, afin de suivre son idée : exagérer les muscles de ses personnages, et même les placer dans des positions inappropriées au corps humain. Dans son ultime fresque, celle du Jugement dernier sur le mur de l'autel de la chapelle, il laissa se déverser le torrent de son âme. Qu'étaient les règles en comparaison d'une souffrance intérieure qui devait s'épancher? C'est à juste titre que les Italiens de son temps parlaient de la terribilità de son style. Michel-Ange fut le premier à donner à la forme humaine la possibilité d'exprimer toute une variété d'émotions psychiques. Dans ses mains, elle devint un instrument duquel il jouait, comme un musicien sur son orgue, en tirant des thèmes et des harmonies d'une diversité infinie. Ses personnages transportent notre imagination bien au-delà de la signification personnelle des noms qui leur sont attachés
