Episode Summary

Michelangelo: Artist and Man
Michelangelo Buonarotti is the most famous, many would say the greatest, artistic genius who ever lived. Among his prodigious number of masterpieces are the vivid biblical scenes that grace the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, the heroic marble sculpture of David, and the central plan for Saint Peter's Cathedral in Rome. For centuries, Michelangelo has been perceived as a tortured and lonely man--a solitary genius who suffered both personal and financial agonies in creating his art. "Michelangelo: Artist and Man" reveals the truth of this perception and examines their falsehoods by looking beyond the myths--into the very soul of the artist whose talents were so remarkable that during his own lifetime he was called Divine.moreless
