Drawings Michelangelo by Pavel Preiss
Large Hardback 178 pages
Very good condition
"Michelangelo destroyed many of his drawings shortly before his death, so few remain for modern scholars and students to study. The sixty-eight drawings which appear in this book, however, are an excellent compendium of the master's work, ranging from his early days as an apprentice in the workshop of Domenico Ghirlandaio to his final years in Rome. In the early drawings can be seen the young Michelangelo's belief in Neoplatonism, a popular Renaissance doctrine that held the contemplation of physical beauty would lead to spiritual revelation. The figures in these drawings reveal Ideal Forms of the human body. The later drawings show less idealized figures, evidence of the great master's disenchantment with Neoplatonism and his preoccupation with age and death. Only in his later years did Michelangelo produce what he considered finished drawings."--BOOK JACKET.
