Transcript of michelangelo

di Lodovico
Buonarroti Simoni Michelangelo Buonarroti Sistine Chapel Ceiling Michelangelo's Sleeping Cupid The chapel of Sistine is most famous for its ceiling. Pope Julius II had requested that Michelangelo repaint the ceiling in 1508. (Same Pope that Michelangelo built the tomb for) He spent the next four years working on it. The Pope had asked for 12 Christian Apostles and the result was more than 3,000 figures. The paintings represent nine stories from the Christian Bible's Book of Genesis including the most famous image, the Creation of Adam. The Sleeping Cupid was a sculpture created in 1496. Michelangelo had artificially aged the sculpture to make it look like an antique. The "Sleeping Cupid" was the sculpture which first brought him to the attention of patrons in Rome. Michelangelo Buonarroti is known as one of the greatest artists of all time. He was an Italian Renaissance sculptor, painter, architect, poet, and engineer. Who was he? 1475 1501 The 6th of March Michelangelo was born in in Caprese, Italy. 1485 He showed a large interest in art by the age of ten. 1488 At 13 he left school and was apprenticed to Domenico Ghirlandaio. Michelangelo creates David, the marble statue. He produced it between 1501-1504. He used David as a model of heroic courage in the hope that the Florentines would understand his message. 1494 Because of the revolution in Florence, he fled to Bologna, leaving his apprentince where he carved for the tomb of San Domenico: the "St. Petronius", "St. Proculus", and the "Kneeling Angel" 1496 When he returned to Florence he sculpted the Sleeping Cupid DAVID He is known for some of art history's greatest masterpieces. Let's start from the beginning. Domenico Ghirlandaio Domenico Ghirlandaio was an Italian Renaissance painter from Florence. He was an apprentice to Michelangelo and many other Renaissance artists. Born: January 11, 1449, Florence
Died: January 11, 1494, Florence This artwork is now lost. St. Petronius St. Proculus Kneeling
Angel 1504 In 1504 he received commission to paint the Battle of Cascina. 1505 Michelangelo is summoned to Rome by Pope Julius II to create the tomb for the Pope. He received the commission along with other famous renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci in direct competition with each other. However both failed to finish their battle scenes. He spends eight months in the quarries of Carrara selecting the perfect marble for the tomb From 1505 t0 1545 1545 Michelangelo works on the tomb of Julius II, Moses, The Rebellious and Dying Slave, Rachel and Leah. The tomb of Pope Julius II is a architectural sculpture by Michelangelo and his assistants. The sculpture was originally designed to be an immense structure that gave Michelangelo the room he needed for his vast sculptures. The architecture began being built in 1505 but was not finished until 1545 because the pope, for unexplained reasons, interrupted the commission. After the pope's death in 1513 the tomb was decided to only be a simple wall tomb with fewer than one-third of the figures originally planned. This was a huge disappointment to Michelangelo. Statue of Moses Statue of Leah Statue of Rachel The Dying Slave and the Rebellious Slave were both sculptures made for the Tomb of the Pope but were never used because of the design changes. 1508 From 1508 to 1512 Michelangelo spent most of his time in Rome painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. 1515 From 1515 until 1534 Michelangelo spent his time carving tombs for the Medici family and designing the Medici Chapel in Florence 1536 Michelangelo creates the "The Last Judgement" 1564 From 1545 to 1555 Michelangelo spends his time working on The Pauling Chapel Frescoes Michelangelo dies February 18th 1564 from a fever. The Pope wanted to have him buried in St. Peter’s however Michelangelo’s nephew and heir, Leonardo, takes the body back to Florence, where it is buried in Santa Croce. Over a hundred artists attended his funeral. Michelangelo is known as one of the greatest artists of all time. Michelangelo’s “David” is known as one of art-history' greatest masterpieces. Michelangelo began creating David in 1501. The statue represents the Biblical hero David. It is made from Carrara marble and it is 17 feet tall. When finished in 1504 it was placed in a public square outside the Palazzo della Signoria in Florence but is now located in the Galleria dell'Accademia, in Florence.
