Baccio Bandinelli: A Study of Rivalry and Imitation in Michelangelo's Florence

To complete a book-length study of the sculptor Baccio Bandinelli (1493-1560), the most distinguished and hitter Florentine rival of Michelangelo. Bandinelli was one of the most impressive sculptors of his time, and active in the other visual arts as well. He was the most influential teacher of his generation. By studing Bandinelli, we can reconstruct the underlying concerns, standards and ambitions of 16th century sculptors with unparalleled clarify. This approach gives new dimension to Michelangelo's achievement as well, and initiates a fundamental revision of our view of the significance of sculpture itself in the art of the Renaissance.
