Having seen the ceiling in the Sistine Chapel on a couple of occasion and appreciated it as an amazing work of art, I had not understood, or even noticed, the plethora of details and their significance. Andrew Graham Dixon writes for both the novice and those with some knowledge of art history and his style is extremely engaging and informative. I now want to go back to Rome and view the chapel again.
