Michelangelo Books, Michelangelo poetry book Michelangelo, Drawing, and the Invention of Architecture Authors: Cammy Brothers, Buonarroti Michelangelo
Published Date: 2008
Categories: Architecture
Michelangelo's fame as a painter and sculptor tends to eclipse his reputation as an architect, but his impact here was just as profound. In this book, Cammy Brothers takes an unusual approach to Michelangelo's architectural designs, arguing that they are best understood in terms of his experience as a painter and sculptor. By following the steps by which Michelangelo arrived at his extraordinary inventions, the author questions conventional notions of spontaneity as a function of genius. Rather, she explores the idea of drawing as a mode of thinking, using its evidence to reconstruct the process by which Michelangelo arrived at new ideas. By turning the flexibility and fluidity of his figurative drawing methods to the subject of architecture, Michelangelo demonstrated how it could match the expressive possibilities of painting and sculpture.

Michelangelo Books, Michelangelo poetry book Michelangelo, the Pietàs Authors: Antonio Paolucci, Michelangelo (Buonarroti), Michelangelo Buonarroti
Published Date: 1997
Categories: Art
The magnificent three Pieta, now in Rome, Florence and Milan, are here introduced by Antonio Paolucci, head of the Florence Soprintendenza and former Minister of Cultural Services in Italy. The works are captured both in their entirety, and in close-ups which reveal the tiniest detail by Aurelio Amendola, one of the leading international photographers of sculpture. The St Peter's Pieta, reflects the classical ideals of the Renaissance: calm and order. Traces of expressive drama appear in the Pieta of Santa Maria del Fiore, and the culmination of this feeling is found in the unfinished Rondanini Pieta, a tormented figure reflecting the artist's religious anxiety. This outstanding book is a pleasure to look at and will be enjoyed by anyone with an interest in sculpture and the Italian Renaissance.

Michelangelo Books, Michelangelo poetry book Michelangelo Authors: Adrian Durham Stokes
Publisher: Psychology Press
Published Date: 1955
Categories: Art
Adrian Stokes was one of the twentieth century's finest and most discriminating writers on art. Of over twenty works of art criticism, Michelangelo was considered by Lawrence Gowing to be the most complete he ever wrote, presenting an understanding of the great artist that no one subsequently could afford to ignore. Stokes brings to bear in this work not only twenty-five years' study and appreciation of Italian Renaissance art and of aesthetics, but also a unique psychological perspective, as he explains in his introduction, which enables him to uncover the depths of the artist's personality. The subtlety of feeling and profound knowledge of sculpture which Sir Herbert Read admired in Stokes's work is also combined with a literary style perfected through his own poetry and criticism. Presenting a unique survey of his subject's literary as well as his artistic legacy, Stokes succeeds, as no other has before or since, in his aim of bringing Michelangelo's greatness into nearer view.

Poem of the day

Coventry Patmore Poem
The Storm
 by Coventry Patmore

Within the pale blue haze above,
Some pitchy shreds took size and form,
And, like a madman's wrath or love,
From nothing rose a sudden storm.
The blossom'd limes, which seem'd to exhale
Her breath, were swept with one strong sweep,
And up the dusty road the hail
Came like a flock of hasty sheep,
