I bought this book second hand at Barter Books (Alnwick), and I don't regret it in the slightest!
This book brilliantly put together to show each piece of artwork created by one of the masters of the arts: Michelangelo.
Each art form has at least one spread dedicated to the history and background of the piece. With the the more larger and detailed art forms having three or four sections surrounding the history of the painting/sculpture.
Each description comes with a personal insight into the life

Brief information about artist Michelango and some of his art work with nice photos of the art work.
