Michelangelo's classic David is one of the world's most recognizable sculptures, a masterpiece of the Italian Renaissance that is also a pop-culture icon. In Michelangelo's David, this timeless work is presented in an intriguing new light, with breathtaking original photographs and insightful writing.
Antonio Paolucci, noted art historian and curator at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, revisits the biblical story to rediscover David's personality, while reconstructing the milestones that marked Michelangelo's creation of this magnificent work. Sumptuous photographs -- some never before published -- by renowned photographer Aurelio Amendola capture David's precise carving, the elegant pose, and the grace of the modeling, revealing every detail of the statue as well as the wonder of the whole.
