Michelangelo's Dream


MICHELANGELO. Buck, Stephanie et al. Michelangelo's Dream. Paul Holberton


Book ID: 91690

Michelangelo's celebrated masterpiece The Dream has been described as one of the finest of all Renaissance drawings and is amongst the Courtauld Gallery's greatest treasures. Based on new research, this richly illustrated publication examines The Dream in the context of the so-called 'presentation drawings' which Michelangelo gave to Tomasso de' Cavalieri, a young Roman nobleman with whom he had fallen passionately in love. Further outstanding drawings by Michelangelo as well as letters and poems by the artist and works by his contemporaries are considered in this revealing study of one of the artist's most complex and personal drawings.
