Michelangelo and the Pope's Ceiling by Ross King
Michelangelo and the Pope's Ceiling

supie, January 19, 2010

You don't have to be an Art History major or an Engineer, to be captivated by Ross King's account of the creative process and historical influences surrounding the painting of the Sistine Chapel. If anything, it makes you want to know more about the enigmatic painter and the challenges he faced in pursuit of his passion. The first time I read this book, I couldn't put it down for an entire cross country flight.
