Michelangelo Quotes About  Art, David, Learning, God, Sistine Chapel, Love, Life & Tmnt! An essential figure in the history of Western art, Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni was an Italian Renaissance sculptor, painter, architect, and poet. Michelangelo was born in Caprese, Italy, on March 6, 1475. Unfortunately, by the time the sculptor was born, they had lost their prominence. Michelangelo had an apprenticeship with Domenico Ghirlandaio, a well-known painter, even though doing so was seen as a social step down. The Medici family’s gardens were where he went to learn sculpting later in life.

Because of the political unrest that followed Lorenzo de’ Medici’s death, Michelangelo was required to flee to Bologna, where he resumed his education. In 1495, he came to Florence and began working as a sculptor, drawing inspiration from ancient antiquity’s masterpieces. Aside from the admiration and sponsorship of Italy’s rich and powerful, Michelangelo had his share of critics due to his sharp intellect and plethora of abilities.

Michelangelo made fun of a fellow student, and he was hit on the nose, which made him look bad for the rest of his life. His most well-known rivalry was with another Florentine artist, Leonardo da Vinci, which was more than 20 years older than him. In his later years, Michelangelo’s poetic inclination, which was previously shown in his sculptures, paintings, and architectural designs, began to take on literary form.

Indeed, his career was extensively chronicled when he became the first artist to have a biography published while still living. On February 18 in the year 1564, he was dead. It is understood that he is still regarded as one of the greatest artists in history. His works were big and ambitious, like the frescoes on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, David and Pieta.
