he Sistine Chapel ceiling is one of the most beautiful and important artworks ever created. Even though Michelangelo considered himself a sculptor, he managed to paint an enormous influential work. Today, more people than ever flock to the Sistine Chapel to see it. A visit to Rome or Italy is not complete without it. Most people just look at the painting and are struck by its beauty. To truly appreciate this work however, you have to know a little bit about it. If you know why this work was so influential and why we still today stand in line for many hours to go and see it, you will appreciate this monumental work even more. Michelangelo did not just paint a few scenes from the bible and that was it. There is a story behind every fresco inside the Sistine Chapel and this book will tell you all these stories and, hopefully, make you enjoy the Sistine Chapel even more, whether you just look at it from pictures or go see it in real life.
