Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni (6 March 1475 – 18 February 1564), commonly known as Michelangelo, was an Italian Renaissance sculptor, painter, architect, poet, and engineer who exerted an unparalleled influence on the development of Western art. Michelangelo usually depicted religious subjects in his art. My art gallery consists of only Michelangelo's art works arranged in chronological order from date. Enjoy

Lamentation (recto), c. 1530, Michelangelo Buonarroti, c. 1530, From the collection of: Albertina

Palazzo Vecchio Museum | First floor | Salone dei Cinquecento he grouping shown in Victory is one of the master's most original, showing an unnaturally elongated youth dominating the uncomfortably bent form of an older man. The extreme twist of the youth's body is beyond the realm of possibility, but Michelangelo manages to persuade us that it is "natural," as he did many times with the twisted nudes in the Sistine Chapel.
