Grant details:

The Two Michelangelos (Book)
Title: The Two Michelangelos
Author: Bette Talvacchia
Abstract: In this book, author Bette Talvacchia explores the significant, but little-discussed, connection between the 'two Michelangelos'. She exposes the dynamic relationship between their work through looking at the ways in which Caravaggio creatively responded to the art of his namesake from the start of his youthful arrival in Rome. In addition, she suggests how Michelangelo’s overwhelming achievement was a model that helped to drive the young Caravaggio’s powerful ambition and shape his identity as an artist.
