Michelangelo in the New Millennium : Conversations About Artistic Practice, Patronage and Christianity - image 1 of 1

about this item

Six paired studies by art historians new to publishing on Michelangelo respond to each other on artist mobility, syncretic seers, and papal patronage: the Pauls. Their topics are site-specificity; Michelangelo's Strozzi Tondo: securing status with art; the Pitti Tondo:a "Sibylline" Madonna; Christ-bearers and seers of the period ante legem: on the male nudes in Michelangelo's Doni Tondo and Sistine ceiling frescoes; virtuous prelates, burdensome relics, and a sliver of gold in the Last Judgment; and Michelangelo the "lefty:" the Cappella Paolina, the expulsion drawings, and Marcello Venusti. Smithers concludes by looking a Michelangelo's suicidal stone. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
