Michelangelo Di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni lived to be 88

Background history

Michelangelo was born in Caprese near Arezzo, Tuscany. He had lived with a stone cutter when he was six after his mother died. A qoute from Michelangelo. "If there is some good in me, it is because I was born in the subtle atmosphere of your country of Arezzo. Along with the milk of my nurse I received the knack of handling chisel and hammer, with which I make my figures." As a young boy Michelangelo was sent to Florence to study grammar under the Humanist Francesco da Urbino, however, he showed no interest in his schooling, preferring to copy paintings from churches and seek the company of painters.

The Bound slave 1530-34

This is my favorite piece of art by Michelangelo, it has different elements of art like texure, and form. I like it because it is of Atlas, he was apart of Greek mythology, he had to hold up the sky.
