Michelangelo: A Collection of Fifteen Pictures, and a Portrait of the Master
by Estelle M. Hurll
Publisher: The Riverside Press 1900
Number of pages: 97
We are dealing here with a master whose import is always serious, and whose artistic individuality is strongly impressed on all his works, either in sculpture or painting. Our selections represent his best work in both arts. These are arranged, not in chronological order, but in a way which will lead the student from the subjects most familiar and easily understood to those which are more abstract and difficult.
