Michelangelo

Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni (6 March 1475 – 18 February 1564), commonly known as Michelangelo, was an Italian Renaissance painter, sculptor, architect, poet, and engineer. Despite making few forays beyond the arts, his versatility in the disciplines he took up was of such a high order that he is often considered a contender for the title of the archetypal Renaissance man, along with his rival and fellow Italian, Leonardo da Vinci.

Michelangelo’s David had taller proportions to make it look beautiful. It was an idealised human, taking the best parts of different sculptures to create one ‘perfect’ sculpture. People believed perfection was being closer to God. a reflection of the beauty of the soul. Being nude shows that he doesn’t need clothes, he is ‘beautiful’.
