  • Michelangelo And The Pope's Ceilingby Ross King

    Random House 2012; US$ 23.98

    In 1508, Pope Julius II commissioned Michelangelo to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.

Nevertheless,... more...

  • The Mirror of the Godsby Malcolm Bull

    Penguin Books Ltd 2006; US$ 33.98

    Perhaps the single most revolutionary aspect of the Renaissance was the re-emergence of the gods and goddesses of antiquity.

The resulting fusion of erotic... more...

  • Apocalypseby Camille Flammarion

    Parkstone International 2014; US$ 5.00

    The final book of the Bible, known both as The Book of Revelation and The Apocalypse of John, is a prophesy of the events that will occur at the end of time.

  • Apocalypseby Camille Flammarion

    Parkstone International 2012; US$ 5.00

    Si le texte évangélique de l?Apocalypse est une des thématiques les plus représentées en histoire de l?art, ce n?est pas tant pour faire allégeance au texte sacré que pour sa représentation : celle de l?humanité en tant que telle. Véritable mise à nu (selon l?étymologie grecque), l?Apocalypse ouvre au peintre les portes d?un miroir psychologique infini.... more...
