OP THE GENIUS OF THE SCULPTOR IN MICHELANGELO'S WORK. Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, 1992. 528 pp. with 373 ills. (74 col.). 32 x 25 cm. ISBN 1891921593 In English.
A wide-ranging examination of Michelangelo's creative process and the ways in which his sculptural perception of form unified his entire oeuvre, this massive catalogue documents an international loan exhibition of 39 drawings, models and architectural sketches by the Renaissance master along with some 120 drawings, sculptures and prints by other artists, including works by such earlier figures as Pollaiuolo, Ghirlandaio and Fiorentino as well as many images illustrating Michelangelo's extensive influence. Fine reproductions and lengthy scholarly analyses of the featured works supplement ten substantial essays, among them discussions of Michelangelo's position in the 16th-century debate over the relative merits of painting and sculpture, the pervasive impact of Classical sculpture on his work, his early achievements as a painter, and the strongly sculptural qualities of his architectural designs.
