The Agony and the Ecstasy

April 1, 2013

PietaIrving Stone’s ‘The Agony and the Ecstasy’ beautifully renders the biography of one of the most versatile artists of all times – Michelangelo Buonarroti. “One should not become an artist because he can, but because he must. It is only for those who would be miserable without it.”

A book about an exceptional genius, whose passion for creation revolutionized art. A panorama of the political and royal interactions of the Renaissance.
