9780714126487: Michelangelo Drawings: Closer to the Master

One of the best known and most influential artists in the history of art, Michelangelo was a prolific sculptor, painter, architect, and draftsman. This lovely book focuses on more than 250 of his drawings executed in chalk, charcoal, and pen and ink. Distinguished art historian Hugo Chapman examines this array of works and discusses how the act of drawing figured prominently in Michelangelo’s work.

Chapman considers the artist’s training and his choice of various techniques in a close investigation of the central role of drawing in  Michelangelo’s career. The author describes the artist’s frugal use of paper, explaining how he often recycled letters and drawings (working on both the front and back of the sheet) throughout his career. Organized chronologically, the book looks at Michelangelo’s early development in Florence and Rome, his accomplishments as papal artist for the Sistine Chapel ceiling with its myriad preparatory studies, and his drawings for the tomb of Julius II, the Medici tombs, the Laurentian library, and the Last Judgement. The fascinating history of the fate of Michelangelo’s drawings after his death is also explored in detail.

Descripción BRITISH MUSEUM PRESS, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Michelangelo, the greatest of Renaissance artists, was active as a sculptor, painter and architect. Aside from a few unfinished paintings and a handful of marbles north of the Alps, his genius can only be appreciated outside of Florence and Rome through his work as a draughtsman. This exhibition and book combine the best examples from the British Museum with studies of comparable quality from the Ashmolean Museum, and also from the small but very high-quality holdings of the Teyler Museum. An introductory discussion covers topics such as Michelangelo s life and contemporary fame, his training and choice of drawing technique, and the history of his drawings after his death. The book is then structured chronologically around the various important projects that punctuated the artist s career, illustrating the way in which his ideas evolved in the creation of such iconic works as the two Sistine Chapel frescoes. Each stage in his life is set against the backdrop of the continually changing political situation, Michelangelo s patrons, and the pupils and contemporary artists whom he so heavily influenced. The book includes colour illustrations of 90 drawings in the show, as well as comparative illustrations of the finished works and related studies showing their evolution.
