His superhuman genius and creative energy qualify Michelangelo as the embodiment of the Italian Renaissance artist; his work unequalled, save only by Leonardo Vinci. His masterpieces the Pietaand David that adorn the Sistine Chapel are evidence of his skill.

Before reaching the tender age of 30, Michelangelo Buonarroti had already sculpted David and Piet?, two of the most famous sculptures in the entire history of art. As a sculptor, painter, draftsman, and architect, the achievements of this Italian master are unique-no artist before or after him has ever produced such a vast, multifaceted, and wide-ranging curve. This comprehensive book explores Michelangelo's life and work with a richly illustrated biographical essay, and a complete four-part inventory of his paintings, sculptures, buildings, and drawings. Full-page reproductions and enlarged details allow readers to appreciate fine details in the artist's vast repertoire, while the book's biographical insights consider a previously unseen extent to Michelangelo's more personal traits and circumstances, such as his solitary nature, his thirst for money and commissions, his immense wealth, and his skill as a property investor. In addition, the book tackles the controversial issue of the attribution of Michelangelo drawings, an area in which decisions continue to be steered by the interests of the art market and the major collections. This is the definitive work about Michelangelo for generations to come, to be delved into and put on display, with its slipcase neatly converting into a book stand.
Jack London was an American novelist, journalist and social activist. Pioneering the genre of magazine fiction and prototyping science fiction, he became one of the first writers, who gained worldwide fame and a large fortune. The Valley of the Moon traces the odyssey of Billy and Saxon Roberts from the labor strife of Oakland at the turn of the century through central and northern California in search of beautiful land they can farm independently. The book is notable for its scenes in which the proletarian hero enjoys fellowship with the artists' colony in Carmel.
This remarkable book is the first volume in what will be the definitive modern biography of Michelangelo. An illuminating study of Michelangelo's extraordinary career, it follows the artist from his apprenticeship in Ghirlandaio's workshop to his move to Rome in 1534, when, at the age of fifty-nine, he left behind his native Florence, never to return. During these years he created such outstanding works as the marble "Pieta", the giant marble "David" (commissioned for the cathedral in Florence), the Sistine Ceiling frescoes, and the new sacristy and library for the Medici family at San Lorenzo; he began the monumental tomb for Pope Julius II in Rome, and he became one of the most sought-after artists of the early sixteenth century. Written by the leading Michelangelo scholar, this prodigiously informative account benefits from recent archival discoveries and restorations, and is enriched by material from the long-awaited editions of the artist's correspondence and artistic contracts. The wealth of new information enables new light to be shed on the genesis of Michelangelo's works in sculpture, painting and architecture, and on his complex psychological relations with his family, friends and powerful patrons.
