Summary
Florence, 1501-1505. Leonardo was a charming, handsome fifty year-old at the peak of his career. Michelangelo was a temperamental sculptor in his mid-twenties, desperate to make a name for himself. After winning the commission to carve what will become a sculpture of David, Michelangelo lives at the foot of his misshapen block of marble struggling until the stone finally begins to speak. Leonardo is obsessed with his ungainly flying machine and haunted by a merchant's wife, whom he is commissioned to paint. Her name is Lisa, and she becomes his muse. Their envy, ambition, and artistic genius create a rivalry such as Florence has never seen
Summary
Follows the artistic rivalry of Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, as well each man's personal triumphs and failings
