Michelangelo & the Pope’s Ceiling
Ross King (au). In 1508, Pope Julius II commissioned Michelangelo Buonarroti to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Rome. Four years earlier, at the age of 29, Michelangelo had unveiled his statue of “David” in Florence. Here is the fascinating story of the four extraordinary years Michelangelo spent laboring over the vast ceiling while the power politics & personal rivalries swirled around him. Battling against ill health, financial difficulties, domestic & family problems, & the pope’s impatience, Michelangelo produced one of the greatest masterpieces of all time. This book provides a magnificent tapestry of day-to-day life on the Sistine scaffolding & outside in the upheaval of early 16th-century Italy, as well as uncommon insight into the intersection of art & history.
