Michelangelo is well-known for his paintings, sculptures, and architects, but this talented man also wrote poems and created signature word order. Michelangelo's poems were formed and influenced by religious beliefs, his love for God, and even his romantic relationship with his young model, Tommaso Cavalier. Poems and sonnets that Michelangelo wrote was another way of self-expression for him, they were a field where Michelangelo could expose himself as a lover, but also as a devoted Catholic. He called him over 300 poems, "something foolish" and "silly." Some of his works are Celestial love, and After trying many years, I feel as lit by fire ad many more.
Michelangelo, the sculptor
Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni thought of himself that he was a sculptor in the first place, and painting and architecture came afterward. If we take a look at David and Pieta, it is easily understandable why he thought so. Bringing life to a lifeless marble was a driving force for him. Michelangelo started sculpting at an early age. In 1490-92 he carved his first work " Madonna of the Steps" that clearly has shown his talent and skills. The sculpture is very detailed, delicate, and soft, presenting Mary as a protective mother. With his later sculptures, David, Moses, Day, Dawn, Bacchus, and so on, he became very popular among people at that time, and he is considered as one of the greatest sculptors of all time.
Architect By Michelangelo
Two cities Florence and Rome, where Michelangelo lived and worked, is a beautiful example of his architectural vision. At that time, artists could not venture authoritatively. Still, Michelangelo could express his ideas into the construction of St.Peter's Basilica, Porta Pia Rome, Palazzo dei Conservatori, Santa Maria Degli Angeli e dei Martiri, Palazzo Farnese, and Sagrestia Nuova. Michelangelo's style is extraordinary, even for today's world. Traditional and modern elements, unfunctional forms, and simple lines create the Michelangelo's architectural world that gives modern architects a lot to think about.
Michelangelo the Painter
Michelangelo's paintings and his style of art are in contrast to the medieval period. Michelangelo Buonarroti refused to use sharp lines and unshaped human forms. Michelangelo, with his excellent knowledge of the human body, creates portraits and figures with precise and delicate anatomy. The skill and knowledge he got out of the many years of working on human corpses, made Michelangelo one of the greatest at his job. He created characters and not just lifeless forms, the fresco, best known as The Creation of Adam is an excellent example of it. This artwork amazes spectators to this day.
