Definitive account of the architectural work of the great
Renaissance artist Michelangelo (1475-1564). This monograph
presents 31 of his projects, some built, some unrealized, beginning
with his early works in Rome at the start of the 16th-century. The
book continues with his work in Florence between 1516 and 1534,
including the Laurentian Library, and finally the major Roman
projects from 1534 to 1564, among them St. Peter's, the Porta Pia,
and Santa Maria degli Angeli. Authors Giulio Carlo Argan and Bruno
Contardi analyse the artist's complex relations with his papal and
Medici patrons and discuss Michelangelo's unconventional
interpretation of the classical language of architecture. The book
reproduces many annotated sketches, pen-and-ink studies, plans and
renderings, along with rich black-and-white photographs of the
buildings taken by leading fine art photographer Gabriele Basilico.
