At Ancona and Orvieto statues of St. John the Baptist.

At Florence the following works are lost: the Dovizia, a figure of Plenty, which stood in the Mercato Vecchio; two bronze heads for the Cantoria; the Colossi for the Cathedral; four large stucco Saints in San Lorenzo; a statue with drapery of gilded lead made with Brunellesco. San Rossore for Ogni Santi; a reliquary of Santa Verdiana (Richa, ii. 231); Albizzi tombs. The Cathedral gates were never made. Bocchi, Cinelli, Vasari, and Borghini mention a large number of smaller works now unidentified; plaquettes, Madonnas, crucifixes, heraldic shields, busts and reliefs.

DOCUMENTS

These are printed as specimens of the original authorities upon which our authentic knowledge of Donatello is based.

A.

Denunzia de' Beni of 1427, stating Donatello's home, his substance, his partnership with Michelozzo; referring also to the bronze relief for the Siena Font and the figure of San Rossore. Also a list of the sculptor's family. (Gaye, i. 120.)

MICHAEL ANGELO BUONARROTI

BY

CHARLES HOLROYD

CURATOR OF THE NATIONAL GALLERY OF BRITISH ART

With Fifty-two Illustrations

"Mr. Holroyd has done excellent service. This story of a marvellous career is full of human charm.... Valuable book."—Standard.

"A serviceable and competent biography which many will be glad to see.... Numerous and excellent illustrations."—Literary World.

"A book that both the student and the general reader will find full of interest. Extremely interesting and vividly recorded."—Westminster Gazette.

"Mr. Holroyd's comprehensive study will be found useful and interesting. The illustrations are numerous and good."—Manchester Guardian.

"A really admirable picture of one who is perhaps the greatest personality in the history of Art; and a sympathetic, yet critical account of his works. Mr. Holroyd writes with knowledge and enthusiasm.... Numerous and well-executed illustrations."—Yorkshire Post.

"This excellent work ... is as suited to the general reader as to the artist. We do not find those deserts of literary speculation so common to the lives of artists."—Spectator.

"The volume gives in a convenient form almost everything that the student for whom it is intended will need to know about Michael Angelo, and will prove a safe guide to his works. The illustrations are well chosen.... We are especially grateful for the engravings of those frescoes in the Pauline Chapel which every one writes about and no one publishes."—New York Evening Post.

THE PUBLISHERS HAVE ARRANGED TO ISSUE A

LIBRARY OF ART

IN STYLE SIMILAR TO THIS VOLUME

ALL SCHOOLS AND PERIODS will be represented, but only the Greatest Masters will emerge as Biographies. The rest will be treated in relation to their fellows and forerunners as incidents of a development.

The Series will, it is hoped, reflect the subject in its true proportions more closely than has been attempted hitherto. At the same time, the scope of the Series will admit of occasional monographs on little-known artists, when some specialist has been able to throw light by new researches on an obscure period. The aesthetic side will not be neglected, but the aim will be to make the Series a store-house of that positive knowledge which must form the basis of all opinion.
