Left Bank Books Presents: Bill Wallace – Michelangelo, God’s Architect

Left bank books presents the Barbara Murphy Bryant Distinguished Professor of Art History at Washington University in St. Louis, William E. Wallace, who will sign and discusse his book Michelangelo, God’s Architect.

Michelangelo, God’s Architect is the first book to tell the full story of Michelangelo’s final two decades, when the peerless artist refashioned himself into the master architect of St. Peter’s Basilica and other major buildings. When the Pope handed Michelangelo control of the St. Peter’s project in 1546, it was a study in architectural mismanagement, plagued by flawed design and faulty engineering. Assessing the situation with his uncompromising eye and razor-sharp intellect, Michelangelo overcame the furious resistance of Church officials to persuade the Pope that it was time to start over.
