Editorial Reviews

Review

"Joannides offers an elegant, detailed, and throughly researched catalogue of these works, one that scrupulously takes into account previous such efforts, adding to them...while paving new ground in the discussion of copies of lost drawings...The volume is extremely manageable and clearly organized and written...An important contribution to Michelangelo scholarship that illuminates a key collection of sketches."
Duke Pesta, Renaissance Quarterly
