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.
Il divino: A glorious exploration of Michelangelo s works Before reaching the tender age of 30, Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475 1564) had already sculpted David and Pieta, two of the most famous sculptures in the entire history of art. As a sculptor, painter, draftsman, and architect, the achievements of this Italian master are unique no artist before or after him has ever produced such a vast, multifaceted, and wide-ranging uvre. This comprehensive book explores Michelangelo s life and work with a richly illustrated biographical essay, and a complete four-part inventory of his paintings, sculptures, buildings, and drawings. Full-page reproductions and enlarged details allow readers to appreciate fine details in the artist s vast repertoire, while the book s biographical insights consider a previously unseen extent to Michelangelo s more personal traits and circumstances, such as his solitary nature, his thirst for money and commissions, his immense wealth, and his skill as a property investor. In addition, the book tackles the controversial issue of the attribution of Michelangelo drawings, an area in which decisions continue to be steered by the interests of the art market and the major collections. This is the definitive work about Michelangelo for generations to come, to be delved into and put on display, with its slipcase neatly converting into a book stand."
Der Sammelband fugt dem Diskurs um die Mensch-Ding-Beziehungen einen neuen Aspekt hinzu: Erstmals wird das Artefakt beziehungsweise Design-Objekt mit dem habituellen, spezifisch gestischen Gebrauchsverhalten seiner Nutzer zusammengesehen und die solcherart manifeste Haltung beziehungsweise motorische Handlung als Handhabung und als Quasi-Bild, kurz als ikonisches Gebrauchsmuster analysiert und zwar nicht nur in theoretischer und kunstlerisch-forschender Traktierung, sondern auch in einer Reihe von Fallstudien. Der Band bietet damit einen umfassenden Einblick in die Fragestellungen aktueller Forschung und vermittelt zahlreiche neue Erkenntnisse zu einer Vielzahl von Objekten der Kunst- und Designgeschichte zwischen Mittelalter und Gegenwart.
