Michelangelo Bunoarroti's (1475-1564) celebrated masterpiece The Dream (Il Sogno) has been described as one of the finest of all Renaissance drawings and it is amongst The Courtauld Gallery's greatest treasures. This book examines The Dream in the context of the so-called "presentation drawings" which Michelangelo gave to Tommaso de' Cavalieri, a young Roman nobleman with whom he had fallen in love. Further drawings as well as letters and poems by Michelangelo and works by his contemporaries are considered in this study of one of the artist's most complex and personal drawings.
