With an engaging text by renowned Michelangelo scholar William E. I bought this book to go along with the author's course from the Learning Company (Great Courses) and found it a wonderful supplement to that course. Standing alone it is an excellent overview of the breadth of Michaelangelo's career as artist. The plates are marvelous and having seen much of his work in Italy it brought back many fond memories and I learned more than I expected both from the course and the book.

Аннотация к книге "Michelangelo. The Complete Paintings, Sculptures and Architecture": Before reaching the tender age of 30, Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475–1564) had already sculpted Pieta and David, two of the most famous sculptures in the entire history of art. As a sculptor, painter, draftsman, and architect, the achievements of this Italian master are unique - no artist before or after him has ever produced such a vast, multifaceted, and wide-ranging oeuvre. Ten richly illustrated chapters cover the artist’s paintings, sculptures, buildings, and drawings, including a close analysis of the artist’s tour de force frescoes in the Sistine Chapel.

I bought this book to go along with the author's course from the Learning Company (Great Courses) and found it a wonderful supplement to that course. Standing alone it is an excellent overview of the breadth of Michaelangelo's career as artist. The plates are marvelous and having seen much of his work in Italy it brought back many fond memories and I learned more than I expected both from the course and the book. It is more than a one time through table top book. Anyone with interest in the subject I think would find this a valuable resource and bring many hours of pleasurable reading and viewing. For those who have the course from the Learning Company you will find that the book follows the course so you can easily use both resources at once.

This is the most beautiful book I own. The pictures are high definition and artistically photographed. It's also a very enjoyable read. I learned a lot about the life of Michelangelo. This is a large book - like a coffee table book but I sat it down on my lap and read it cover to cover. I'd highly recommend it.

A classic - well organized, beautiful photos and sketches. Great gift or "coffee table" book.

I love it. Big beautiful pictures, details. One problem. Some pages are faced with very very thin sheets of paper than can easily be torn when turning pages.

Seen all the originals. Book helps to take appreciation much deeper -- and keep the joy alive.
Dukinos
Gorgeous, large illustrations. And well-written and interesting for what could be considered a coffee table book. I highly recommend it for lovers of art, color and form.

Beautiful book, saw it for sale in the Vatican Museum giftshop and ordered it from Amazon the nanosecond I arrived back home (no room in suitcase to carry it back). Very lovely plates of all Michelangelo's works. I saw the Sistine Chapel and there is nothing like it but the book is a lovely addition to my art tome collection.
After visiting Michelangelo's creations in Italy and reading "The Agony and the Ecstasy", I had to have a collection of his works! This book is not disappointing, it covers everything he accomplished.
