Michelangelo

The artist

Can you tell me more about this Michelangelo?

He was an artist born on March 6,1475 in Flourence italy which is where he spent most of his life. He also apperanticeted Domeinco Ghirlandaio at age 13. So as you can tell now most of his life arounding paintings and scluptuers or trying to get someone to pay him for his sculptures and paintings. A coulpe pieces of his work are The sisteine chaplel,David,Angel,Battle ofthe centuars. Though he did have Patrons which was mainly the Church wether it was doing something for a local church or helping the pope he always helped the church.This my friends was Michelangelo


The Sistiene Chapel

The painting was started in 1508 and was finished in 1512. Which still stands today at Viale Vaticano, 2, Città del Vaticano, Vatican City. Even with its age though it still hold meaning to the world we live in today. Though maninly just to the Catholic Religion. This is because the voting for the new Pope happens here.


So why did i find the Sistiene Chapel so intresting?

I found this piece of artwork very interesting because quite frankly i did not think it was very good, in fact I found it quite bland. Though the fact that it attracts so many people amazes me. I believe that if someone could paint people they could easily paint this a lot better then what was done. Also to cause it was done for the pope and it seems like he cared very much about the church but dint seem to care about his request to do this painting. Thus peeking my interests
