A rebellious youth who chose a career as an artist against his father'sishes, Michelangelo (1475-1564) went on to be recognized as one of theutstanding talents of his age. Such was the degree of fame and wealth thate acquired that he became a legend within his own lifetime. In the centuriesince his death his work has been almost universally admired, and he has beenast as the prototype for artistic genius.;In this introduction to thertist's life and work, Anthony Hughes employs the latest evidence fromesearch and restoration projects to take a fresh look at what Michelangeloas and what he has become.;Setting Michelangelo within the political andocial world he inhabited, Hughes interprets his work not only as thexpression of an individual sensiblity but also as the results of oftenifficult transactions between artist and clients. He gives us an account ofhe full range of Michelangelo's creative endeavours, in the processxploring the artist's relations with family and friends, his sexuality andis position in the 16th-century world.
