The Lost Battles
Leonardo, Michelangelo, and the Artistic Duel That Defined the RenaissanceBook - 2012
The great artistic clash between Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci marks the true beginning of the High Renaissance. Re-creating sixteenth-century Florence with astonishing verve and aplomb, the author not only sheds new light on the making of the modern world but, in its portrait of two cultural titans going toe to toe, rewires our understanding of the personalities of the Renaissance's greatest icons.
