By Lupita Peimbert.

Born March 6, 1475, in what it was then Caprese, Republic of Florence, Michelangelo is considered one of the greatest painters of all times and a great influencer for western art.

 

Some of the most notable works of the sculptor and artist are the David in Florence and The Last Judgment at the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican.

If you want to learn more about his life and works, I’ve found Wikipedia and the Britannica Encyclopedia to have solid information about this renowned artist. For now, here are two images to delight on.
