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.
