Michelangelo

Michelangelo Buonarroti

Michelangelo was born on March 6, 1475, in Caprese Italy. Michelangelo spent most of his life in the city of Florence, Italy. MIchelangelo was taught at Florence's Humanist Academy. Michelangelo's lifestyle was fairly decent. Some of his paintings and sculptures include the Pieta, David, Sistine Chapel, and his Last Judgement. Some of his patrons include Julius II, Leo X, Clement VII, and Paul III. The two most represented -ism's that he represents are Humanism, because his paintings and sculptures include lots of naked men and women, and it is not over the top about god.


Michelangelo's Last Judgement

The painting is called Last Judgement. The piece was created in 1534-41. You can see the painting today in history books, art books, and the internet. It is significant, because it had many nude people in the painting. The painting is a painting of the difference of heaven and hell, with heaven being naked women on clouds, and hell being naked men near a lava pool. Humanism is mostly represented in the painting, because of the naked men and woman on the clouds, not gods on top, promoting humans. I find the piece to be interesting, because it is a perfect example of how the Renaissance era was so much different than now.
