Reviews
"This fascinating volume lets us watch genius creating itself."--Don Fry, Virginia Quarterly Review--Don Fry "Virginia Quarterly Review" (3/1/2009 12:00:00 AM)

"That Michelangelo's architecture evolved from his sculpture is generally acknowledged. With unprecedented precision and thoroughness, Brothers, the author of this beautiful volume . . . explains exactly how. . . . A refreshing contribution to Renaissance studies, and to Michelangelo scholarship. . . . Recommended."-- Choice

-- "Choice" (5/4/2009 12:00:00 AM)
"This book is one of the most important to have appeared on Michelangelo since James Ackerman's The Architecture of Michelangelo of 1961. It is beautifully written, crisp, astute, and witty, its felicities and insights are too numerous to enumerate here, and it should be included in every course on Renaissance architecture."--Caroline Van Eck, Renaissance Quarterly--Caroline Van Eck "Renaissance Quarterly"
