an essay on the restoratioin by Gianluigi Colalucci,
Michelangelo The Vatican Frescoes.
NY, Abbeville Press Pubs, (1996). 1st ed 1st ptg. VG in VG DJ. After nearly 15 years of effort, restoration of Michelangelo's frescoes in the Vatican Sistine Chapel is complete and here. shown in its entirety including a magnificent double fold-out of the ceiling. Originally created in the late 1400s, the frescoes are the best-known of all the Vatican masterpieces. As early as 1502 tourists began noticing damage from smoke and crumbling walls. By 1980 the need for conservation appeared to be dire. Many art historians opposed the restoration believing Michelangelo was a somber artist who worked in dark and muted colors. But the restoration presents frescoes that are gloriously vivid and set the chapel aglow with their brilliance bringing new insights about Michelangelo's brushstroke techniques and adding more information to a centuries-old debate over how he worked with the wet plaster surface of the frescoes. With double-overlapping DJ edges to prevent edge wear. Owner name. Priority shipping would require extra postage.
