An great artist that has made humans look at art differently

About Michelangelo

Michelangelo was born on March 6, 1475 in Caprese, Italy. He was part of a large family history line and a large family in general. As he got into education and school, he was taught banking and investing. But, he skipped his classes because he was not interested in his classes and instead visited the city galleries and churches to study the artwork that layed upon them. As he got older, he moved out from his family and worked with other builders to help build Duomo, Italy. This is where he spent most of his life. Here is where he started to create his art pieces: illusions, pictures, and architecture. He created the art piece,"Modonna of the stairs." His 3 main patrons for this were Girdamo Savondrola, Medici Causin, and Raffiel Riario.

What it could be about: A knight trying to take away the daughter of the father, and so they are arguing.

The significance that this piece could have: The picture looks like it could have a huge story behind it due to the looks of the argument in the piece. It could be the tragedy of a family member and something has to be done or changed, or it could be for no reason(AKA: something that doesn't need to be agued about)
