I, Michelangelo, Sculptor - An Autobiography Through Letters - Edited by Irving Stone and Jean Stone, 320 pages (Hardcover)

The letters of Michelangelo had never been translated into English until Irving Stone started work on his famous biographical novel 'The Agony and the Ecstasy'. Since these letters were to be the backbone of Mr Stone's research, he commissioned the well known Renaissance scholar Charles Speroni to translate them.

These letters appear for the first tme in English in this book, brilliantly edited and annotated in chronological sequence. They constitute a revealing self-portrait of the great sculptor and painter who lived to be nearly ninety and wrote letters for more than sixty-five years of his life.

Most of the letters contrast sharply with the sheer monumentality of his art. He discusses mundane matters with his father, his brothers, his friends and his patrons. He worries about money, servants, about interruptions to his work and about conflicts in his commissions.

This unique book illuminates in Michelangelo's own words the passion, intellect and humanity of this great creator. Please click here to ask a question
