La Capilla Sixtina es uno de los más famosos tesoros artísticos de la Ciudad del Vaticano. Fue construida entre 1471 y 1484, en la época del papa Sixto IV, de donde procede el nombre por el que es conocida, aunque inicialmente se llamó Capilla Palatina. Su arquitecto fue Giovanni d'Dolci siguiendo los modelos de las antiguas plantas basilicales romanas las cuales por su parte se inspiraban estructural y arquitectónicamente en antiguos edificios griegos como el Concejo del Ágora ateniense.

Es conocida en todo el mundo no sólo por ser la sala en la que se celebra el cónclave y otras ceremonias oficiales (como las coronaciones papales), sino sobre todo por sus murales pintados por Michelangelo Buonarroti (Miguel Ángel). Se encuentra a la derecha de la Basílica de San Pedro, después de la Scala Regia ('Escalera Real'), y originalmente servía como capilla al interior de la fortaleza vaticana.
En esta obra podrá admirar las maravillosas pinturas que la decoran. Las fotografía son a todo color y los comentarios en español. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0789209349, Hardcover)

The frescoes of the Sistine Chapel are often viewed as a striking study in the contrast between the middle and High Renaissance styles. On the one hand, the scenes painted on the chapel walls by Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, Perugino, Rosselli and Signorelli which depict parallel events in the lives of Moses and Jesus, exemplify the narrative art developed in Florence in which multiple incidents and numerous draped figures are depicted in a single view. On the other hand, Michelangelo's scenes from Genesis on the chapel's ceiling epitomize art of the High Renaissance with it's emphasis on compositional clarity and the human form. His immense Last Judgement on the chapel's altar wall even anticipates Mannerism, which pushed the expressive power of the nude to it's limit.

"An scholarly exposition of the symbolism of the renowned fresco cycle, illustrating both Michelangelo's frescoes and those of the quattrocento"--Provided by publisher.
