Comments Michelangelo

  1. I finished Howard Hibbard s nonfiction Michelangelo , second edition, in just a couple of days not for the best of reasons The author described his work as a biography for the layman, but the elaborate detailing of Michelangelo s works, interspersed with biographical information, was for me overwhelming I admit to considerable skimming over the elaborate describing of the meaning and structure of his major sculptures, painting and architectural accomplishments, further documented with excerpts f [...]


  2. I read the second edition of this book, which I recommend highly It speaks of Michelangelo s life and art painting mostly frescoes , sculpture, poetry, and architecture.This book quotes extensively from Michelangelo s letters, and includes his poetry in Italian with English translations I don t read Italian, but found the translations to be less than inspiring This isn t a result of bad translation it s impossible to translate a sonnet and remain in the sonnet formIf you want to learn about Mich [...]


  3. Probably the best biography on Michelangelo that I ve read The author weaves in material from the artist s own drawings, letters and poems as support for his interpretations A very organized approach to Michelangelo s massive body of work But since the source material is Michelangelo s sonnets, and his spunky correspondence with Pope s and other artists, its also entertaining Very comprehensive.


  4. I was disappointed in this book It contained a ton of great information about Michelangelo and his art, but it was a bit boring How could someone take a subject like Michelangelo and make him boring Eeehhhh.I don t dig Hibbard s writing style.





  5. Beautiful volume, as only the Folio Society can produce Fully illustrated in dust cover not dust jacket.


  6. Solid biography of the great Renaissance man It d be hard to overstate the influence Michelangelo has wielded over the history of art since the Mannerist period A worthy read.
