Abstract:

The Sistine Chapel is one of the most important places for the Christian faith and for the entire history of art. This beautiful book tells the complete story of the chapel through detailed text and gorgeous, full-color spreads. Reproductions of the chapel's artistic splendor are prominently featured, including paintings, sculptures, and even Michelangelo's blueprints. Lively illustrations and cutaways depict the construction of the chapel, the Florentine workshop, and Michelangelo's painstaking method for creating the glorious ceiling. The contributions of everyone involved in this monumental feat -- from Pope Sixtus IV and Julius II to Botticelli and Michelangelo -- are documented in this fascinating blend of art and history.
