Very few artists can claim such lasting and worldwide fame and
importance as Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564). The nickname il
divino ("the divine one") has been applied to him since the 1530s
right through to today: his achievements as a sculptor, painter,
and architect remain unparalleled and his creations are among the
best-known artworks in the world. This Bibliotheca Universalis
edition is devoted to the artist's graphic work, a testimony to his
masterly command of line, form, and detail, from architectural
studies to anatomically perfect figures. The book brings together
some of the artist's finest drawings from museums and collections
around the world as well as some of his own notes and revisions,
offering stunning proximity not only to the ambition and scope of
Michelangelo's practice but also his working process. A chapter
with a compilation of newly attributed and reattributed drawings
provides further insights into Michelangelo's varied graphic oeuvre
and the ongoing exploration of his genius.
