Abstract:

"Michelangelo's frescoes in the Sistine Chapel - the great glory of the Vatican, and one of the treasured masterpieces of Western painting - provide a visual feast for art lovers in this magnificent book." "Presenting a complete survey of the restored Sistine Chapel frescoes from Creation scenes to the Last Judgment, the book includes a new text by a highly regarded American scholar, Marcia B. Hall. The stunning photographs, taken just after the decade-long restoration, reveal Michelangelo's glowing colors and intricate designs in both large, overall views as well as a wealth of close-up details. No other one-volume work on the Sistine Chapel offers such a clear, accessible introduction to these beloved and important works."--Jacket.
