Description
Interviewer: "So you're not against painting per se?"

Michelangelo Buonarroti: "I'm against Flemish painting, which is completely overrunning us. Some people say that God was a painter, painting the world into existence, but you can't imagine him sitting down before an easel in fine clothes, fretting neurotically over minute details, repainting ad nauseam. It took him seven days to create the entire universe. How many years did Leonardo spend painting the upper third of that smug Florentine housewife?"

Presented as a comfortable chat between Michelangelo and a time-traveling interviewer, this compact little book imagines what it would be like to spend and hour or two with the great Renaissance artist over a cup of tea or coffee. The entertaining conversation is purely fictional, yet solidly based on biographical facts.
