The World of Michelangelo
Michelangelo's lifespan, 1475-1564, corresponds with one of the most remarkable artistic, literary, intellectual, and religious periods in history: the flowering of the High Renaissance and Mannerism in Florence and Rome. Although he considered himself a sculptor, he created remarkable works in painting, drawing, architecture, and poetry. How did his environment shape his art? How did he influence his world? Come find out!
