The work took four years to complete and was done between 1536 and 1541. Michelangelo began working on it some twenty years after having finished the Sistine Chapel ceiling.
Michelangelo, Sistine Chapel, Vatican City. This is interesting to me because Michelangelo was my project topic, and this shows both the ceiling and the last judgment. The ceiling is a beautiful work of art with great detail. The last judgement even has more detail and it was done 29 years after the ceiling.
