Here, legendary historian Charles Clement tells the story of how Michelangelo painted the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. He lays bare the jealousy, politics, and ambition behind the work on which Michelangelo’s fame so largely and deservedly rests. It’s a vivid portrait of an artist, his time, and the work that has made him an object of fascination for centuries.
