Michelangelo And The Pope's Ceiling
From Shelf: Favourite Non-Fiction
In 1508, Pope Julius II commissioned Michelangelo to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Nevertheless, for the next four years he and a hand-picked team of assistants laboured over the vast ceiling, making thousands of drawings and spending back-breaking hours on a scaffold fifty feet above the floor.
