Happy Birthday Michelangelo!

Today we celebrate a great Artist!

If he were alive today, he would have been 539 years old, but Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni has already completed more in his lifetime than many of us can dream to. Michelangelo was renowned as an Italian sculptor, painter, architect, engineer and poet during the High Renaissance. He is considered one of the greatest artists of all time. 

Michelangelo lived from March 6, 1475-February 18, 1564 and died at the age of 88. He's renowned for being one of the top artists of the High Renaissance. He was a true Renaissance man as his great works range from sculpture to painting to poetry and even architecture. His famous works include the sculpture of David, Pieta, the painting of Madonna with Child, The Last Judgment and the Sistine Chapel Ceiling. He fancied himself a sculptor and had a lower opinion of painting despite painting two very famous frescos: The Last Judgment and the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. 

His Finest Works:


The Statue of David


Madonna and Child




The Last Judgment


The Ceiling of the Sistine Chapel

You did a great job on Michelangelo that everybody I have ever known including in Italy pronounced it right and me wrong. I thought that they were wrong but for the accent. This is the first time that I have ever been wrong that I know of!
By the way you guys have come a long way with your publication and although it was good from he beginning right now it is at least an A-, as a grade. What you are adding to it is great and to be honest at times I am surprised to read things that are as I believe right 100% of the times with the additions etc.,  done very well but yet after all you are Jewish and this means your next step is Hollywood,
