2 Reviews
In this masterly work, Professor Hibbard relates Michelangelo's art to his life and to the times in which he lived, relying on the earliest biographies and the latest scholarly research as well as on Michelangelo's own letters and poems. What emerges is both a perceptive appraisal of his work and a revealing life - history of the man who was arguably the greatest artist of all time.

Review: Michelangelo

User Review  - Cameron - Goodreads

Solid biography of the great Renaissance man. It'd be hard to overstate the influence Michelangelo has wielded over the history of art since the Mannerist period. A worthy read. Read full review

Review: Michelangelo

User Review  - Leila - Goodreads

I was disappointed in this book. It contained a ton of great information about Michelangelo and his art, but it was a bit boring. How could someone take a subject like Michelangelo and make him boring? Eeehhhh....I don't dig Hibbard's writing style. Read full review
