Art critic Martin Gayford reveals the epic sweep of Michelangelo’s life, explaining what it felt like to be the great artist and how he transformed our notion of what an artist could be forever. Michelangelo was considered the finest artist in Italy or even the world at the age of 31. Long before his death at the age of 90, he was considered the greatest painter or sculptor who had ever lived. He worked at the centre of dramatic events and most of his works were on a vast scale or difficult to accomplish.

Gayford has been art critic of the Spectator and Sunday Telegraph and is currently chief European art critic for Bloomberg. His other publications include The Yellow House: Van Gogh, Gauguin and Nine Turbulent Weeks in Arles, The Penguin Book of Art Writing, of which he was co-editor, and Man with a Blue Scarf: On Sitting for a Portrait by Lucian Freud.
