Transcript of Michelangelo
By: Lionell Jean
Michelangelo was born on March 6, 1475 in Caprese Michelangelo, Italy .
Michelangelo died on February 18, 1564 at Rome, Italy.
His colleagues are Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, and Donato Bramante
As a young boy, Michelangelo was sent to Florence to study grammar under the Humanist Francesco da Urbino.
He, however, showed no interest in his schooling, preferring to copy paintings from churches and seek the company of painters.
Sistine Chapel Ceiling
In 1505, Michelangelo was invited back to Rome by the newly elected Pope Julius II.
He was commissioned to build the Pope's tomb, which was to include forty statues and be finished in five years.
For several generations, his family had been small-scale bankers in Florence, but the bank failed.
His father, Ludovico di Leonardo Buonarroti Simoni, briefly took a government post in Caprese, where Michelangelo was born.
Michelangelo was a devout Catholic whose faith deepened at the end of his life.
The Madonna of the Steps is Michelangelo's earliest known work. It is carved in shallow relief, a technique often employed by the master-sculptor of the early 15th century.
The Taddeo Tondo of 1502, shows the Christ Child frightened by a Bullfinch, a symbol of the Crucifixion.The lively form of the child was later adapted by Raphael in the Bridgewater Madonna.
The Bruges Madonna was, at the time of its creation, unlike other such statues which show the Virgin proudly presenting her son.
