520 |a Michelangelo (1475-1564) is one of the most important and influential artists in the history of art. Documented as a sculptor who worked in a variety of media, his production in bronze has, until recently, proved elusive. However, in 2015 an international team of experts proposed that a pair of stunning male nude figures astride ferocious felines, known as the Rothschild bronzes, should be ascribed to Michelangelo and dated to the early 1500s. These enigmatic and visually-striking bronze masterpieces are the focal point of this multi-authored, interdisciplinary volume, which seeks to reassess Michelangelo's work in bronze and contextualize it within the rest of his output. It contains ground-breaking contributions by leading international experts in the field of art history, anatomy, conservation science and bronze-casting. This book, the first comprehensive interdisciplinary account of Michelangelo's work as a sculptor in bronze, is the outcome of extensive original research undertaken over several years by academics at the University of Cambridge together with a team of international experts, directed by Dr. Victoria Avery, a leading authority on the history, art and technology of bronze casting in Renaissance Italy.--  |c Publisher description.
