Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni "I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free" ~Michelangelo Born March 6, 1475 in Caprese, Italy
Died February 18, 1564 in Rome, Italy Early Life and Familia Father~ Lodovico Buonarroti was a Florentine government agent.
Mother~ Francesca Neri died when he was six years old. Mingling with Medicis From his childhood, Michelangelo was drawn to the arts. He was often beaten by his father and uncles as punishment for drawing instead of studying. Influences and Teachers When his son was 13, Michelangelo's father finally gave in and allowed the boy to apprentice Domenico Ghirlandaio, a popular Florence painter. After a year of unsuccessful learning, Ghirlandaio sent his pupil to Bertoldo de Giovanni, a great sculptor, who worked in the Medici Palace. One day, Lorenzo de Medici walked into the garden to find Michelangelo sculpting a mask. Offering small criticisms, the Medici heir was surprised at the young artist's attention to detail. Some of his Works David (1501-1504) Pieta (1499) 18 feet tall and anatomically correct! Sistine Chapel (1508-1512) The Last Judgement (1531-1534) Painted on the altar wall of the Sistine Chapel!
