In this way the two great labours of Buonarroti's life were mapped out for him in a moment.
Buonarroti was the wonder of Italy, and Raphael became its idol.
Michelangelo (commonly anglicised as above) Buonarroti (which surname, however, is commonly dropped) is the Titan of Italian art.
Buonarroti had covered the ceiling and arches with biblical scenes.
His frescoes and allegories illustrate the defects that have been pointed out in those of Raphael's and Buonarroti's imitators.
You see, Cerini has there at the library hundreds of letters which belong to the Buonarroti archives.
Before the violence of Buonarroti, Leonardo's calm almost feminine smile, tinged with sadness, suggested weakness.
He had a giant form, like one of Buonarroti's ancients, muscular and supple, graceful and erect.
A good engraving is to be found in Buonarroti's Osservazioni sui medaglioni, p. 497.
This work surprised every one, and is still preserved in the collection of the Buonarroti family.
