4.0 out of 5 stars Highly readable, 11 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Lost Battles: Leonardo, Michelangelo and the Artistic Duel That Defined the Renaissance (Mass Market Paperback)
Jonathan Jones weaves together details of the lives and art works of Leonardo and Michelangelo to create a highly readable narrative which really captures much of the spirit of the Renaissance. The reader can really sense the spirit of rivalry and feel the emerging sense of individualism that defined the era. In creating such a readable account however, Jones often strays into overuse of emotive, hyperbolic language. He also tends to ascribe specific motivations and states of mind to his two protagonists that are based on very tenuous inferences. If you can overlook this, the book is a very enjoyable read. If that kind of thing annoys you, steer clear.
