Michelangelo Fiorentino et Rafael da Urbino: Masters of Art in the Vatican (Hardback)Antonio Paolucci (author)
- Not available
A magnificently illustrated art book of the highest quality that features the works in the Vatican of these two Renaissance greats.
"To speak of Raphael and Michelangelo in the Vatican means to return to the origins of the great Italian art of the Renaissance, and therefore, to the origins of the artistic history of the West."
Michelangelo and Raphael dominate and nurture all that takes place after them in the realm of the arts. Therefore, the two giant are held together, confront each other, are reflected in each other, and should be evaluated together, in the knowledge that without them, the story of the arts in Italy and in Europe would not have been the same.
