This book provides a compelling insight into the life and times of Italian master Michelangelo, who is considered one of the greatest artists of the Renaissance – and perhaps of all time. This book explores his relationship with his contemporaries and his immense artistic practice that included painting, sculpture, poetry, draftsmanship and architecture.

Among the works explored are the huge frescoes of the Sistine Chapel Ceiling, the marble giant David and the Last Judgment. Like a hero of classical mythology - such as Hercules, whose statue Michelangelo carved in his youth - he was subject to constant trials and labours. In this book, Martin Gayford describes what it felt like to be Michelangelo Buonarroti, and how he transformed forever our notion of what an artist could be.
