Michelangelo and The Pope's Ceiling

By King, Ross




In 1508, despite strong advice to the contrary, the powerful Pope Julius II commissioned Michelangelo to paint the ceiling of the newly restored Sistine Chapel. With little experience as a painter (though famed for his sculpture David), Michelangelo was reluctant to begin the massive project.

Michelangelo and the Pope's Ceiling recounts the four extraordinary years Michelangelo spent laboring over the vast ceiling while the power politics and personal rivalries that abounded in Rome swirled around him. Battling against ill health, financial difficulties, domestic problems, the pope's impatience, and a bitter rivalry with the brilliant young painter Raphael, Michelangelo created scenes so beautiful that they are considered one of the greatest masterpieces of all time. A panorama of illustrious figures converged around the creation of this great work-from the great Dutch scholar Desiderius Erasmus to the young Martin Luther-and Ross King skillfully weaves them through his compelling historical narrative, offering uncommon insight into the intersection of art and history.

New York: Walker & Company. New with no dust jacket. 2003. First American Edition. Softcover. This is the book about how Michelangelo came to be involved with the Sistine chapel, how the chapel came to be, and his relationship with Pope Julius II. The Pope had planned to have his body kept in a great tomb designed by Michelangelo. However, when it was discovered that the Vatican was out of true by six feet, he determined that the place he had chosen, St. Peters, was in no fit state to accommodate such an impressive monument. In his usual grand way, Pope Julius II had St. Peters demolished, and the Sistine Chapel was built upon that site. So the story begins, fascinating from the first chapter to the last. Includes notes, bibliography, and an index. Black and white illustrations can be found throughout the book, and there are seven pages in color, and a diagram of the paintings, including the artists' names. The front cover has a very minor bend in the upper right-hand corner. Written by the author of Brunelleschi's Dome. ; 373 pages .
