This is a beautifully designed monograph on the architectural works of Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564), and the only hardcover illustrated book in print in English on the subject. Like the other titles in the Old Masters series, this book is an authoritative monograph in a slipcase, combining a scholarly text with more than 500 stunning black-and-white photographs, plans, and drawings, and 24 color illustrations, many reproduced at full-page size. The book documents the architectural works of Michelangelo in five chapter essays and an extensively annotated and illustrated catalogue of 31 of Michelangelo's architectural projects. Though Michelangelo is probably Italy's most famous artists and the name most associated with the Italian Renaissance, his architectural work is less known - though no less influential - than his paintings and sculptures. Surprisingly, among the dozens of books on Michelangelo, virtually none focus on his architecture. This volume focuses exclusively on Michelangelo's architectural production and is the only publication on the market to provide an authoritative text and complete visual documentation of the work, in beautiful reproductions and photograph
