The outstretched hand of God reaching out to Adam in “The Creation of Adam” by Renaissance master Michelangelo (1475 – 1564) is expressively depicted with an air of suspenseful anticipation. Portraying the moment preceding their connection, the legendary gesture is part of one of nine scenes from Genesis which Michelangelo painted on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. A genius versed in the arts, sciences and anatomy, Michelangelo had a profound influence on the advancement of Western art.
Intellectually versatile, the brilliant Italian Renaissance artist Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475 – 1564) was also a skilled architect, poet and engineer. His studies of human anatomy and movement resulted in figures that were remarkably lifelike. Michelangelo’s crowning achievements were his sculptures, “Pietà” and “David,” created before he was 30, and the Sistine Chapel ceiling fresco, which was finished in four years and contained 300 figures. His eternal masterpieces were rendered in a wide range of media, and he was the first artist to have two biographies written about him in his lifetime.
