520    "An artist's extraordinary challenge to himself reveals 
       the genius of Michelangelo in the making. Many believe 
       Michelangelo's talent was miraculous and untrained, the 
       product of "divine" genius, but the young Michelangelo 
       studied art like any Renaissance apprentice, learning from
       a master and experimenting with materials and styles. As a
       grad student in art history, Alan Pascuzzi won a Fulbright
       scholarship to "apprentice" himself to Michelangelo, 
       studying his extant drawings and copying them to learn the
       progression of his technique, mastery of anatomy and 
       composition, and understanding of human potential. 
       Pascuzzi also relied on the Renaissance treatise that "Il 
       Divino" himself would have been familiar with, Cennino 
       Cennini's The Craftsman's Handbook (1399), which was 
       available to apprentices as a kind of textbook of the 
       period. Pascuzzi's narrative traces Michelangelo's 
       development from student and young artist to master during
       the period from roughly 1485 to his completion of the 
       Sistine Chapel ceiling in 1512. Analyzing Michelangelo's 
       burgeoning abilities through copies he himself executed in
       museums and galleries in Florence and elsewhere, Pascuzzi 
       unlocks the transformation that made him great. At the 
       same time, he narrates his own transformation from student
       to artist as Michelangelo's last apprentice"--|cProvided
