Michelangelo facts

  • Considered to be the greatest living artist during his lifetime, he has since also been described as one of the greatest artists of all time
  • Despite making few forays beyond the arts, his versatility in the disciplines he took up was of such a high order that he is often considered a contender for the title of the archetypal Renaissance man, along with his rival and fellow Florentine Medici client, Leonardo da Vinci
  • A number of Michelangelo's works of painting, sculpture, and architecture rank among the most famous in existence

  • He sculpted two of his best-known works, the Pietà and David, before the age of thirty
  • Despite holding a low opinion of painting, Michelangelo also created two of the most influential frescoes in the history of Western art: the scenes from Genesis on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Rome, and The Last Judgment on its altar wall
  • As an architect, Michelangelo pioneered the Mannerist style at the Laurentian Library
  • At the age of 74, he s쳮ded Antonio da Sangallo the Younger as the architect of St
