Reviews

An absorbing book, beautifully told and with the writer fully in command of a huge body of research -- Philip Hensher * Mail on Sunday *
One of our most distinguished writers on what makes modern artists tick . . . It is very difficult to cut through the thicket of generations of scholarship and say anything new about David, the Sistine Chapel, The Last Judgement, the Basilica of St Peter's or many of Michelangelo's other masterpieces, but Gayford manages to do so by encouraging us to think - and look - at both the obvious and the overlooked * Sunday Telegraph *
It is a measure of [Michelangelo's] magnitude, and Gayford's skill in capturing it, that you finish this book wishing that Michelangelo had lived longer and created more -- Rachel Spence * FT *
Only the most ambitious biographer can take on the talent of Michelangelo Buonarroti * The Times *
