40- Why Study Michelangelo, the Cranky Artist

1/7/2019
More
Michelangelo was an amazingly talented painter, architect, and poet, but his favorite art form was sculpting. He was probably the most talented sculptor who ever lived, perhaps even the most talented artist who ever lived. His art was dramatic, detailed, and always perfect. The people he sculpted were usually twisting or displayed in striking (or maybe awkward) poses. All this drama makes Michelangelo a link between the traditional Renaissance art and the Mannerist movement which bridges the...
