Michelangelo Buonarroti, sculptor, painter, architect, and poet, is one of the greatest artists of all time. In the fifteenth century, when he was born, artists were considered merely workmen. Michelangelo’s contributions changed the way both art and the artist were seen. The great works he created earned him a reputation as a genius and inspired generations of artists. His artistic triumphs, which are considered monuments of Western art, never fail to amaze.

Sean Connolly has written more than 35 books for children and young adults. His published work, with subjects ranging from modern history to biographies of great artists, reflects the breadth of his interests.
