"In the late fifteenth century, the palace of Lorenzo the Magnificent, ruler of Florence, was a meeting place of intellectuals, writers, philosophers, and artists. Among them was the talented young Michelangelo, soon to rank with Leonardo da Vinci and Raphael as one of the giants of the Renaissance. This book tells of Michelangelo's training in the workshop of Ghirlandaio, his fascination with the frescoes of Giotto and Masaccio, and the development of his lifelong passion for sculpture. If Michelangelo had created nothing but the majestic statue of David, his place in art history would have been secure; that he combined tremendous talents in both sculpture and painting marks him as one of the greatest artists who ever lived."--Publisher details.
