Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman and Designer
Considered one of greatest Italian artists of the Renaissance movement, Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475- 1564) is celebrated for his disego, a term that intwines both drawing and conceptual design.
The book takes a journey through Michelangelo’s career as Carmen C. Bambach examines the artist as “the divine draftsman and designer”, a description offered by Giorgio Vasari, beginning with his training under Ghirlandaio and Bertoldo and finishing with his 17-year appointment as chief architect of St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican.
As curator in the Department of Drawings and Prints at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Bambach brings together a variety of Michelangelo’s works within each chapter and proposes new insights into his creative process, as well as examining his theories of art and how his personal life affected his work.
