Some brief overview of this book

Has any other artist left the world such a vast legacy as Michelangelo? Author Philip Wilkinson leads young readers on a journey of discovery through the life and works of the Italian Renaissance painter, sculptor, architect, and poet in a visually evocative book. Wilkinsons lively narrative follows Michelangelo from his early apprenticeship in fresco through his fascination with sculpture, which gave us such masterpieces as the Pieta and David.

Readers learn how Michelangelo studied anatomy by cutting up cadavers and of his tortuous struggle to release the human form from raw stone. With the help of period artwork, quotes, and photographs of artifacts, the book traces Michelangelos lifelong association with the Medici family and his Vatican patronage through several papacies. His monumental work on the Sistine Chapel ceiling is examined in detail, as is Michelangelos role as Chief Architect to St.

Peters. Michelangelos story will enthrall all who are inspired by the search for perfection. National Geographic supports K-12 educators with ELA Common Core Resources.
