Irving Stone’s classic biographical novel of Michaelangelo—in which both the artist and the man are brought to life in full.

A masterpiece in its own right, this novel offers a compelling portrait of Michelangelo’s dangerous, impassioned loves, and the God-driven fury from which he wrested the greatest art the world has ever known.

About the Author:

Irving Stone (1903-1989) was born in San Francisco. He wrote several books in a genre that he coined the “biographical novel,” which recounted the lives of well-known historical figures. In these novels, Stone interspersed biography with fictional narrative on the psychology and private lives of his subjects. He also wrote biographies of Clarence Darrow and Earl Warren, and short biographies of men who lost presidential elections.

Review:

"[Stone] has painted the portrait of a supreme craftsman who was also one of the most versatile artists of all time."
