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.
