A painter, on panel and in fresco, a sculptor, architect, and poet, Michelangelo Buonarroti was the first artist recognized by his contemporaries as a genius. "The Little Book of Michelangelo" provides an accessible introduction to the life and work of this most influential of artists. A biographical essay sets the scene, and the handy alphabetical entries that follow, accompanied by some 100 illustrations, include detailed commentary on his best-known works such as the colossal marble sculpture of David, and--the world's single greatest fresco--the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.
