Join author Stephanie Storey for the presentation of her debut novel, Oil and Marble, a history thriller with Leonardo & Michelangelo as main characters.
In her brilliant debut, Storey brings early 16th-century Florence alive, and has entered with extraordinary empathy into the minds and souls of two Renaissance masters, creating a stunning art history thriller. From 1501 to 1505, Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo Buonarroti both lived and worked in Florence. 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. Leonardo despises Michelangelo for his youth and lack of sophistication. Michelangelo both loathes and worships Leonardo’s genius.
Called “Extraordinarily entertaining” by The New York Times, Oil and Marble is the story of their nearly forgotten rivalry and the years when they created two of the most famous works of art in all of history in the same town, at the same time: Mona Lisa and David.
