Oversized. Publisher's description: Before reaching the tender age of 30, Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564) had already sculpted David and Pieta, two of the most famous sculptures in the entire history of art. His achievements as a sculptor, painter, draftsman, and architect are unique -- no artist before or after him has ever produced such a vast, multi-faceted, and wide-ranging oeuvre. This is demonstrated not only by the frescoes of the Sistine Chapel but also by Michelangelo's monumental sculptures and his unconventional architectural designs, whose forms went far beyond the accepted vocabulary of his day. Such was his renown that Michelangelo was the subject of two biographies during his lifetime. TASCHEN brings you this comprehensive tome that explores Michelangelo's life and work in more depth and detail than ever before. The first part concentrates on the life of Michelangelo via an extensive and copiously illustrated biographical essay; the main body of the book presents his work in four parts providing a complete analytical inventory of Michelangelo's paintings, sculptures, buildings, and drawings. Gorgeous, full-page reproductions and enlarged details bring readers up close to the works.
