Description - Michelangelo, Handwriting (Embellished Manuscripts Collection) Ultra Lined Softcover Flexi Journal (Elastic Band Closure) by Paperblanks
Michelangelo Buonarroti s (1475 1564) mind was an incessant battlefield. The opposing forces of religious faith and pagan beauty warred across his consciousness. They also helped spur him to create a pantheon of artistic masterpieces.Considered one of the masters of the Italian Renaissance, over the course of his lifetime he produced the finest frescoes and many of the most revered sculptures in the world. Michelangelo possessed a genius as severe and uncompromising as it was fertile. He was renowned for his fierce solitude, yet was one of the great chroniclers of the human form. His anatomical studies are haunting in their expressiveness and precision, while his tombs, such as those designed for Julius II and the Medicis, inspire wordless awe and perhaps even dread.This letter, written in Michelangelo s own hand, demonstrates with every stroke of the pen the refinement and passion of one of the greatest artists humanity has produced. And with the Sistine Chapel s The Creation of Adam featured on the back cover, the point of creation beautifully bookends this Embellished Manuscript notebook.
