Michelangelo

Michelangelo was a sculptor, painter and architect widely considered to be one of the greatest artists of the Italian Renaissance period-and arguably of all time. His work demonstrated a blend of physiological insight, physical realism and intensity never before seen. his contemporaries recognized his extraordinary talent, and Michelangelo received commissions from some of the most wealthy and powerful men of his day, including popes and others affiliated with the Catholic Church. His resulting work, most notably his Pieta and David sculptures and Sistine Chapel ceiling paintings, has been carefully tented and preserved, ensuring that future generations would be able to view and appreciate Michelangelo’s genius.
