The name Michelangelo instantly conjures up the Sistine Chapel, Apollo, Jupiter and countless other great works. In his novel, The Italian Painting, Stendhal remarked that, "Between Greek antiquity and Michelangelo, nothing exists except more or less skilled forgeries". In Promenade in Rome, Chateaubriant expresses his admiration for the refined lines of the Pieta. A number of great writers such as Manzoni view Michelangelo as one of the indisputable Masters of the western revival in art. The work of Michelangelo has, indisputably, stood the test of time.

The name Michelangelo instantly conjures up the Sistine Chapel, the David, the Pieta and countless other great works. In his History of Italian Painting, the French writer Stendhal remarked that, "between Greek antiquity and Michelangelo nothing exists, except more or less skilled forgeries". The work of Michelangelo has, indisputably, stood the test of time. How is it possible that in just a few years Michelangelo was able to uncover the secrets of a creative source worthy of his Greek predecessors?

Michelangelo by Eugène Müntz( Book )

20 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The legend of Michelangelo (1475-1564) has endured undiminished for five hundred years. Scholars like Chateaubriand, Manzoni and Rilke have seen in him a master of the renewal of Western art. Indeed, endowed with an almost superhuman creative genius, Michelangelo incarnates for us the universal man of the Italian Renaissance, and the quality and scope of his oeuvre is uncontested, not even by Leonardo da Vinci, works like his Pietà, David, and the Sistine Chapel frescoes are the proof. How was he able, in so few years, to develop the methods behind a body of work worthy of his Greek predecessors? No one has better examined the complexities of the man, the artist and the age he lived in than Eugene Müntz. His text, written in clear and pure style, is a literary work in itself, and it is accompanied here by illustrations of an exceptional quality." --Provided by Publisher

Correspondance allemande d'Eugène Müntz : aux origines de l'institutionnalisation de l'histoire de l'art by Eugène Müntz( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in German and French and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professeur d'esthétique et d'histoire de l'art à l'École des Beaux-Arts de Paris, Eugène Müntz (1845-1902) est l'auteur d'une oeuvre monumentale, qui porte essentiellement sur la Renaissance italienne. À côté de ses travaux historiques, sa correspondance représente une source essentielle pour la recherche en histoire des sciences humaines, mais également pour l'étude des circulations culturelles transnationales. Figure centrale d'une histoire de l'art en pleine institutionnalisation, Müntz entretient des relations épistolaires régulières avec les représentants majeurs de la discipline dans l'espace germanophone. Sa correspondance constitue ainsi un observatoire privilégié pour étudier une série de débats fondateurs sur l'iconographie, le connoisseurship, les tendances nationalistes de l'historiographie de l'époque. Ces textes font d'ailleurs ressortir la dimension matérielle de l'élaboration de l'histoire de l'art. Ils éclairent la fondation des revues spécialisées, la mise en place de sociétés savantes et des premiers congrès internationaux d'histoire de l'art. Ils offrent des informations précieuses sur la pratique de la traduction, les usages de la critique bibliographique, les modalités de constitution de la documentation écrite et visuelle. Ils témoignent enfi n d'une proximité avec l'historiographie allemande, qui fait moins de Müntz un médiateur distant qu'un véritable protagoniste sur la scène germanique.

Rafael : su vida, su obra y su tiempo by Eugène Müntz( Book )

8 editions published between 1946 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rafael fue el artista más parecido al gran escultor Pheidias. Los griegos decían que este último no había inventado nada, pero fue capaz de llevar cada tipo de arte inventado por sus predecesores a tal cúspide, que logró alcanzar la armonía pura y perfecta. Estas palabras,?armonía pura y perfecta?, expresan, de hecho, mejor que cualquier otra, lo que Rafael llevó al arte italiano. De Perugino tomó toda la delicada gracia y sutileza de la escuela de Umbria, adquirió la fuerza y la certidumbre en Florencia, y creó un estilo basado en la fusión de las lecciones de Leonardo y de Miguel Ángel a la luz de su propio espíritu noble. Sus composiciones sobre el tema tradicional de la Virgen y el Niño les parecieron a sus contemporáneos intensamente novedosas, y sólo su gloria consagrada evita que percibamos en la actualidad su carácter original. Logró un trabajo aún más sorprendente en la composición y la realización de los frescos con los que, desde 1509, adornó las Stanze y la Loggia en el Vaticano. La cualidad de lo sublime, que Miguel Ángel alcanzó a través de su fervor y su pasión, Rafael la logró mediante un dominio del equilibrio entre la inteligencia y la sensibilidad. Una de sus obras maestras, La escuela de Atenas, fue decididamente hija de su genio: los diversos detalles, las cabezas, la suavidad del gesto, la facilidad de la composición, la vida que circula por todas las partes iluminadas son sus rasgos más característicos y admirables
Miguel Ángel : Great Masters by Eugène Müntz( Book )

4 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Miguel Ángel, como Leonardo, fue una persona con muchos talentos: escultor, arquitecto, pintor y poeta. Alcanzó la cima de la representación del movimiento muscular, que el entendía como la manifestación de la pasión. Modeló, dobló, retorció y estiró sus dibujos hasta el límite de sus posibilidades. En las obras de Miguel Ángel no hay nunca paisajes, todas las emociones, las pasiones, la humanidad de sus obras se personifican, a su modo de ver, en los cuerpos desnudos de hombres y mujeres; rara vez concibió la forma humana en actitud de inmovilidad o reposo. Miguel Ángel se hizo pintor para p

Michelangelo, like Leonardo, was a man of many talents; sculptor, architect, painter and poet, he made the apotheosis of muscular movement, which to him was the physical manifestation of passion. He moulded his draughtsmanship, bent it, twisted it, and stretched it to the extreme limits of possibility. There are not any landscapes in Michelangelo's painting. All the emotions, all the passions, all the thoughts of humanity were personified in his eyes in the naked bodies of men and women. He rarely conceived his human forms in attitudes of immobility or repose. Michelangelo became a painter so that he could express in a more malleable material what his titanesque soul felt, what his sculptor's imagination saw, but what sculpture refused him. Thus this admirable sculptor became the creator, at the Vatican, of the most lyrical and epic decoration ever seen: the Sistine Chapel. The profusion of his invention is spread over this vast area of over 900 square metres. There are 343 principal figures of prodigious variety of expression, many of colossal size, and in addition a great number of subsidiary ones introduced for decorative effect. The creator of this vast scheme was only thirty-four when he began his work. Michelangelo compels us to enlarge our conception of what is beautiful. To the Greeks it was physical perfection; but Michelangelo cared little for physical beauty, except in a few instances, such as his painting of Adam on the Sistine ceiling, and his sculptures of the Pietà. Though a master of anatomy and of the laws of composition, he dared to disregard both if it were necessary to express his concept: to exaggerate the muscles of his figures, and even put them in positions the human body could not naturally assume. In his later painting, The Last Judgment on the end wall of the Sistine, he poured out his soul like a torrent. Michelangelo was the first to make the human form express a variety of emotions. In his hands emotion became an instrument upon which he played, extracting themes and harmonies of infinite variety. His figures carry our imagination far beyond the personal meaning of the names attached to them
