xii, 259 pp; 200 black & white illus.; 40 color illus. Original cloth, 4to. Near Fine, in near fine dust jacket. 'In this engaging and handsome book, Cammy Brothers takes an unusual approach to Michelangelo's architectural designs, arguing that they are best understood in terms of his experience as a painter and sculptor. Unlike previous studies, which have focused on the built projects and considered the drawings only insofar as they illuminate those buildings, this book analyses his designs as an independent source of insight into the mechanisms of Michelangelo's imagination. Brothers gives equal weight to the unbuilt designs, and suggests that some of Michelangelo's most radical ideas remained on paper. Brothers explores the idea of drawing as a mode of thinking, using its evidence to reconstruct the process by which Michelangelo arrived at new ideas. By turning the flexibility and fluidity of his figurative drawing methods to the subject of architecture, Michelangelo demonstrated how it could match the expressive possibilities of painting and sculpture' (Yale University Press Web site).

Über diesen Titel


Book by Brothers Ms Cammy


"This book is one of the most important to have appeared on Michelangelo since James Ackerman's The Architecture of Michelangelo of 1961. It is beautifully written, crisp, astute, and witty, its felicities and insights are too numerous to enumerate here, and it should be included in every course on Renaissance architecture."-Caroline Van Eck, Renaissance Quarterly -- Caroline Van Eck * Renaissance Quarterly * Winner of the 2010 Charles Rufus Money Book Award given by the College Art Association -- Charles Rufus Money Book Award * College Art Association * "That Michelangelo's architecture evolved from his sculpture is generally acknowledged. With unprecedented precision and thoroughness, Brothers, the author of this beautiful volume . . . explains exactly how. . . . A refreshing contribution to Renaissance studies, and to Michelangelo scholarship. . . . Recommended."- Choice * Choice * "This fascinating volume lets us watch genius creating itself."-Don Fry, Virginia Quarterly Review -- Don Fry * Virginia Quarterly Review *
