Raphael's active career lasted 20 years, Michelangelo's closer to 75. Works by the two, both influenced by Leonardo, are viewed in contrast. The magnificent drawings are from the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, which houses one of the world's preeminent collections of Raphael and Michelangelo.

This small book reveals how with both artists technical mastery is brought to new heights as they develop a freedom and spontaneity in grappling with ideas on paper based on a knowledge of the potential and tools and materials which goes far beyond the skills of Quattrocento drawing practice.
