great account of the renaissance artists, maybe?
on 10 December 2015
I haven't yet troubled myself to read the extended portion of the book which relates to Michelangelo and this might change my opinion on it. However as far as I can adduce from the rest of it there are only short sections on the other artists lives and much of these read as a blow by blow account of their careers rather than giving much of a sense of them as people. In a sense its like another old text the New Testament of the Bible that is a blow by blow account of Jesus' travails. Great for some reason obviously, although I'm not sure what it is
