Enchanted Lion Books, 2003 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 40 pages
Michelangelo (1475-1564) began his work as an apprentice when he was thirteen. At twenty-four, he carved the Pieta which today stands in St. Peter’s in Rome. From 1408 to 1512, he painted the gigantic fresco that covers the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Twenty-five years later, from 1536 to 1541, he painted The Last Judgement on the wall behind the high altar. Hailed as the greatest artist of all time by the art historian, Vasari, Michelangelo continues to move and amaze through the tremendous energy and sheer beauty of his work.
This conveniently sized edition is ideal for the pockets of young students and older art lovers alike.
