Michelangelo, one of the masters of the Italian Renaissance, was born on this day in 1475, and he's also the subject of one of our newest titles. Added to Paperblanks®' Spring 2012 catalogue is "Michelangelo, Handwriting", a writing journal design that reproduces in fine detail a letter handwritten by Michelangelo. This letter demonstrates with every stroke of the pen the refinement and passion of one of the greatest artists humanity has produced.
This design is available in two formats: Ultra and Mini. To find out more about these books, and similar blank books that reproduce the work of some of the greatest writers, thinkers and artists of all time, go to our Embellished Manuscripts products page here.
About Michelangelo: A Genius as Severe as it was Fertile
Michelangelo Buonarroti’s (1475–1564) adolescent mind was an incessant battlefield. The opposing forces of religious faith and pagan beauty warred across his consciousness. They also helped spur him to create a pantheon of artistic masterpieces. Considered one of the masters of the Italian Renaissance, over the course of his lifetime he produced the finest frescos and many of the most revered sculptures in the world. Michelangelo possessed a genius as severe and uncompromising as it was fertile.
Michelangelo was renowned for his fierce solitude, yet was one of the great chroniclers of the human form. His anatomical studies are haunting in their expressiveness and precision, while his tombs, such as those designed for Julius II and the Medicis, inspire wordless awe and perhaps even dread.
