Reviews

"[A] labor of love catalog. . . . Nearly every drawing in the Met show is a work sheet. The artist makes sketch, rotates it to make a second, turns it over and adds yet another. Images on any given sheet might include bodybuilders, saints, architectural elevations, a pornographic doodle, a man screaming, a verse from Petrarch, a beloved face. To a genius, monuments are made of any and all of these."--Holland Cotter, New York Times
"Bambach's intriguing book-length essay--the main event in a typically imposing Met catalogue, which also features specialized studies by other scholars and a formidable critical apparatus--views Michelangelo's sprawling practice through the concept of disegno, an Italian term for both a physical drawing and its underlying idea. This reading of Michelangelo makes the well-known story of the master feel fresh."--Christopher Lyon, Bookforum
