Michelangelo Buonarroti: The Taddei Tondo

The authoritative volume presents a fresh new examination of Michelangelo's Taddei tondo, the only Michelangelo marble in Britain. The Taddei tondo has been at the heart of the Royal Academy Collections since it was bequeathed by Sir George Beaumont, John Constable’s patron, in 1830. The piece offers a fascinating insight into the master’s technical and experimental skills, demonstrated by its tantalising lack of finish.
