A legend within his own lifetime, Michelangelo (1457-1564) has been universally admired in the centuries since his death.
Anthony Hughes employs the latest evidence from research and restoration projects to take a fresh look at what Michelangelo was and what he has become.
The book sets the artist firmly within the political and social world he inhabited, offering a full account of his creative endeavours in sculpture, drawing, painting, architecture and poetry.
