About this title


In this work, Alexander Perrig proposes a set of objective criteria for determining the authenticity of drawings, thoroughly examines those works that by external evidence are deemed to be by Michaelangelo and reattributes others to four of Michelangelo's entourage. Perrig begins by providing details about his methodology and the new criteria he has established. In the second part of the book he offers a list of genuine Michelangelo drawings, drawings that provide all that is needed to recognize and define the mater's style from youth to old age. In the last part of the book Perrig discusses four groups of drawings generally ascribed to Michelangelo that lack the typical properties of his style, and he links these to four well-known personalities in the master's circle. Perrig's findings were originally published in German in an five-volume work. This books is a summary of the original edition.
