By Carmen C. Bambach
This catalogue accompanies The Metropolitan Museum of Art Department of Drawings and Prints exhibition.
Michelangelo Buonarroti (Italian, 1475–1564) was especially celebrated for his disegno, a term that embraces both drawing and conceptual design. Featuring more than 200 drawings as well as paintings, sculpture, and architectural plans and views, this authoritative volume examines the Renassiance master as "the divine draftsman and designer" whose work, according to Giorgio Vasari, embodied the unity of the arts.
In each thematic chapter, related drawings and other works are illustrated and discussed together, many for the first time, to provide new insights into Michelangelo’s creative process. In addition to St. Peter's, other featured projects include the Sistine Chapel ceiling, the Tomb of Pope Julius II, and the architecture of the Campidoglio in Rome.
Carmen C. Bambach is curator in the Department of Drawings and Prints at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
