Masters of the Renaissance: Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and More - Jim Weiss
Masters of the Renaissance: Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and more performed by Jim Weiss
In true stories as vivid as the colors in which they painted, Jim Weiss brings to life the astounding Leornardo da Vinci; the volcanic genius Michelangelo; Brunelleschi, who changed the way we see the world; the lighthearted sculptor, Donatello; and other captivating characters. You will watch fierce Pope Julius II drive out invaders while supervising the painting of the Sistine Chapel, and dine in the palace of Lorenzo de Medici, swordsman, statesman and patron of the arts, as he faces treachery and turns war to peace. This recording will inspire a lifelong fascination with the arts—and with the riches and high aspirations of the Renaissance.
