WILLIAM E. WALLACE PRESENTS “MICHELANGELO: THE ARTIST AND THE ARISTOCRAT”


Do we really need a new biography of Michelangelo? Is there anything left to say? William E. Wallace speaks about the challenges and excitement of writing a modern biography of the famous Renaissance artist. Wallace offers a substantially new view of the artist, who was not only a great sculptor, painter, architect and poet but also an aristocrat who believed in the ancient and noble origins of his family. William E. Wallace is a professor Renaissance art and architecture at Washington University in Saint Louis and an internationally recognized authority on Michelangelo. In addition to more than eighty essays, chapters and articles, he is the author and editor of four different books on Michelangelo. His latest book, Michelangelo: The Artist, the Man and his Times, was published in October 2009. A book signing will follow the lecture.
