Although we particularly associate Michelangelo with larger than life masterpieces like David and the Sistine Chapel ceiling, his genius is also evident in his notebooks. Shedding light on one of the greatest minds of the Renaissance, this chronologically arranged profile of the artist samples his sketches and the finished artworks they made possible. Michelangelo was also an eminent poet in his day, and a selection of his love poems appears here with excerpts from his journals and his letters, while Carolyn Vaughan's commentary puts these texts in biographical perspective.
