The temperament of the day was dictated by the politics of the papal court, a corrupt and powerful office steeped in controversy Pope Julius II even had a nickname, Il Papa Terrible, to prove it Along with his violent outbursts and warmongering, Pope Julius II took upon himself to restore the Sistine Chapel and pretty much intimidated Michelangelo into painting the ceiling even though the artist considered himself primarily a sculptor and was particularly unfamiliar with the temperamental art of fresco Along with technical difficulties, personality conflicts, and money troubles, Michelangelo was plagued by health problems and competition in the form of the dashing and talented young painter Raphael. Author Ross King offers an in depth analysis of the complex historical background that led to the magnificence that is the Sistine Chapel ceiling along with detailed discussion of some of the ceilings panels King provides fabulous tidbits of information and weaves together a fascinating historical tale J.P CohenWhen Pope Julius II saw Michelangelo s Pieta, he determined to have his grand tomb made by the artist Summoned from Florence to Rome in 1508, Michelangelo found himself on the losing side of a competition between architects and the victim of a plot to force a hopeless task upon him frescoing the vault of the Sistine Chapel How the sculptor met this painterly challenge is the matter of this popular account, which demythologizes and dramatizes without hectoring or debasing Forget cinematic images of Charlton Heston flat on his back Michelangelo s head tipped back, his body bent like a bow, his beard and paintbrush pointing to heaven, and his face spattered with paint is excruciating enough to sustain the legend King Brunelleschi s Dome re creates Michelangelo s day to day world the assistants who worked directly on the Sistine Chapel, the continuing rivalry with Raphael and the figures who had much to do with his world if not his art da Vinci, Savonarola, Ariosto, Machiavelli, Martin Luther, Erasmus , including the steely Julius II King makes the familiar fresh, reminding the reader of the novelty of Michelangelo s image of God and how completely unheard of in previous depictions of the ancestors of Christ was his use of women Technical matters making pigments, foreshortening are lucidly handled The 16 color and 30 b w illustrations were not seen by PW, but should add further specifics to a nicely grounded piece of historical dramatization Copyright 2002 Reed Business Information, Inc.
