Michelangelo's World (Ovations)

Michelangelo's World - J. Patrick Lewis Again, the description above is not of this book. An artist biography of perhaps the most talented artist of all time. With each spread there is a feature work of Michelangelo's with a description and explanation of the art and an accompanying sonnet. The poetry is to draw attention to the fact that most aren't aware that Michelangelo wrote poetry and sonnets in addition to his painting, architecture and sculpture. Enough information to properly introduce the reader to the influences that motivated the artist, as well as portraying his personality and the time within which he lived.
