It was Michelangelo's talent and imagination that created the Pieta, the famous statue of David, and the Sistine Chapel's ceilings. What was his life like before he became famous? Readers discover the story of Michelangelo Buonarroti, a man who sculpted with materials others abandoned, whose first official piece of art was really a fraud, and who hid his own likeness in many of his paintings. This artistic genius was as fascinating as he was skilled, and his life is presented to readers through engaging main text and sidebars, annotated quotes from art historians, and examples of his most famous works.
