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.
