Summary
  • Creighton Gilbert's writings on Michelangelo are fundamental documents for both the interpretation of a particular artist and a more general understanding of Renaissance art. Gilbert is one of the finest and most lucid interpreters of this immensely complex and intriguing artist and his time
  • Michelangelo: On and Off the Sistine Ceiling brings together and illustrates a selection of Professor Gilbert's new writings and most important papers on Michelangelo. The volume begins with an overview of all of Michelangelo's work--in painting, drawing, sculpture, and architecture--to provide the chief facts and special characteristics of his life and work. It is then divided into two parts
  • The first contains essays on Michelangelo's frescoes on the Sistine Ceiling. In the second part, Professor Gilbert turns to the greater context of Michelangelo's world--Florentine art at the turn of the 16th century and the influences between Michelangelo and his artist contemporaries. These essays, essential readings in the history of Renaissance art, will interest not only students of art but all readers concerned with issues ranging from specific ties between artists to the cultural contexts of Renaissance art and artists
