Michelangelo : the artist, the man, and his times by William E Wallace( Book )
23 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and German and held by 1,538 libraries worldwide
Overview: Michelangelo is universally recognized to be one of the greatest artists of all time. In this vividly written biography, William E. Wallace offers a substantially new view of the artist. Not only a supremely gifted sculptor, painter, architect, and poet, Michelangelo was also an aristocrat who firmly believed in the ancient and noble origins of his family. The belief in his patrician status fueled his lifelong ambition to improve his family's financial situation and to raise the social standing of artists. Michelangelo's ambitions are evident in his writing, dress, and comportment, as well as in his ability to befriend, influence, and occasionally say "no" to popes, kings, and princes. Written from the words of Michelangelo and his contemporaries, this biography not only tells his own stories but also brings to life the culture and society of Renaissance Florence and Rome. Not since Irving Stone's novel The Agony and the Ecstasy has there been such a compelling and human portrayal of this remarkable yet credible human individual
Michelangelo : the complete sculpture, painting, architecture by William E Wallace( Book )
12 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 1,294 libraries worldwide
"With an engaging text by renowned Michelangelo scholar William E. Wallace, Michelangelo: The Complete Sculpture, Painting, Architecture brings together in one exquisite volume the powerful sculptures, the awe-inspiring paintings, and the classical architectural works of one of the greatest artists of all time. Including everything from his sculptures Piet?s and David to his beautiful paintings of the Sistine Chapel and the Doni Tondo, the book provides an opportunity to view Michelangelo?s work as never before, and to more fully understand the artist who, through his work, spoke of his life and times. The frescoes are specially printed on onion skin paper to recreate the actual appearance of light reflecting off of the plaster walls. The stunning black-and-white photography of the sculptures is printed in four colors to bring out the rich details of the marble."--Publisher's website
Michelangelo : volume 1, the achievement of fame, 1475-1534 by Michael Hirst( Book )
12 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 937 libraries worldwide
Volume 1 is the first book in a two-volume history of the great artist; it covers his early life and rise to prominence in Italy. This study of Michelangelo's extraordinary career follows the artist from his apprenticeship in Ghirlandaio's workshop to his definitive move to Rome in 1534, when at the age of fifty-nine, he left behind his native Florence, never to return. During these years he created such outstanding works as the marble Pietà, the giant marble David, commissioned for the cathedral in Florence, the Sistine ceiling frescoes and the new sacristy and library for the Medici family at San Lorenzo. He also began the monumental tomb for Pope Julius II in Rome, and he became one of the most sought-after artists of all time. Written by a Michelangelo scholar, this informative account benefits from recent archival discoveries and restorations, and is enriched by material from the long-awaited editions of the artist's correspondence and artistic contracts. The wealth of new information enables fresh light to be shed on the genesis of Michelangelo's works in sculpture, painting and architecture, and on his complex psychological relations with his family, friends, and powerful patrons.--From book jacket, v.1
The complete poems of Michelangelo by Michelangelo Buonarroti( Book )
36 editions published between 1961 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 933 libraries worldwide
"Michelangelo studied and wrote poetry throughout his life, frequently turning to it in times of emotional crisis or stress. His finest literary efforts are often allied with the masterworks of his visual art. As he labored in the Sistine Chapel with visions of the Last Judgment, he composed a series of passionate love sonnets. And while struggling, near the end of his life, to complete his final Piet̀a, he worked at religious poems anguished in their fervor. Indeed, the power of his verse seemed to grow with age, as if compensating for his diminishing physical strength." "Nims, an eminent poet in his own right, has translated the entire body of Michelangelo's poetry, from the artist's ardent twenties to his anguished and turbulent eighties."--Jacket

Three worlds of Michelangelo by James H Beck( Book )
4 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 743 libraries worldwide
The personalities of artists often lie hidden behind veils of fact, myth, and hearsay. Seizing on clues found in hundreds of contemporary documents, many in the artist's own hand, a scholar-detective redefines Michelangelo from his earliest relationships to the days of his heroic labor on the Sistine Chapel. In James Beck's account, three men perceived and helped shape Michelangelo's creative powers. His stern father, Lodovico, instilled in him a rigorous work ethic. Their relationship, however, would be defined by bitterness: Lodovico longed for his son to train for a lucrative occupation, perhaps as a merchant or a lawyer, vigorously opposing Michelangelo's desire to become a painter. Even after Michelangelo achieved fame, he wrote Lodovico that "all the difficulties I have undergone, I always did for your love." At a critical juncture in Michelangelo's youth, support came from the most powerful man in Florence, the imperious ruler Lorenzo de'Medici. In his late twenties, Michelangelo began his third crucial alliance, this time with the recently elected Pope Julius II, in Rome. Three Worlds of Michelangelo offers an entirely new approach to understanding the mind, temperament, and sexuality of an unparalleled artist who, even in his own time, was called divine

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 583 libraries worldwide

Michelangelo by Linda Murray( Book )
5 editions published between 1980 and 1992 in English and Spanish and held by 295 libraries worldwide
Contemporaries saw Michelangelo as the greatest artist of all times, recognizing in his creations an inspiration more divine than human. Today our appreciation of Michelangelo's sublime vision, and of his matchless gifts as sculptor, painter, architect and poet, has been strengthened and enriched by the perspective of four centuries. And Michelangelo himself has become the archetype of genius--dedicated, solitary, single-minded, tormented, harassed, unsatisfied and undefeated. In this lucid and authoritative survey, Linda Murray explores the political and religious context of his career, the recurring themes in the work, and the complex symbolism and iconography of his greatest masterpieces

"Ascanio Condivi was a young pupil and assistant of Michelangelo's who gained the trust and confidence of the great artist. His biography of Michelangelo to a large extent is based on the artist's own words, tells the story of his life, his relationship with his patrons, his objectives as an artist, and his accomplishments, forming the basis of a biography that has been central to the study of Michelangelo for four centuries." "First published in 1976, this translation is now available in paperback for the first time and includes a revised introduction based on new research, as well as an up-to-date endnotes section."--Jacket
