The Road to Michelangelo The History of Western Sculpture from the Fall of Greece to the Rise of the David
Aug 09, 1997
Witness the spectacular history of Western sculpture from the tragic fall of the Ancient Greeks to the heroic rise of Renaissance Man. In this six-hour presentation, Miss Shaw will trace the fate of sculpture through the depravity of the Roman Empire, the breath taking destruction of the Western world, across agonizing centuries of darkness on through the Middle Ages to catch the first sparks of thought that ignite the Renaissance. Then, experience the culmination of Man's long struggle to win back his mind, in the life and works of a giant of the Renaissance, the great Michelangelo. Throughout this adventure story, Miss Shaw will show with a slide presentation how philosophic ideas are translated into sculptural form.
