Description

This book offers a fascinating look at the works of art neighbouring Michelangelo's "David", and the landmark restoration project in restoring them to their former glory. Housed in the Tribune of the Accademia Gallery in Florence is one of the world's most famous and instantly recognizable works of art - Michelangelo's "David". However, the "David" is not the only work of art to be displayed in the Tribune, it is also home to a series of colossal paintings (some nearly 15 square metres) by contemporaries of Michelangelo - including Pontomo, Alessandro Allori, and Francesco Granachi. Not only are these paintings spectacular in their own right, but they also provide an invaluable insight into the artistic and cultural context in which Michelangelo was able to sculpt David. This lavishly illustrated volume not only takes reader on a fascinating tour of the paintings in the Tribune, but also tells the story of the groundbreaking project undertaken in 2002/2003 to restore them to their former glory.
