  • Krish Datta

    The Pietà (1498–1499) is a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture by Michelangelo Buonarroti, housed in St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City. It is the only piece Michelangelo ever signed. This famous work of art depicts the body of Jesus on the lap of his mother Mary after the Crucifixion.

    "Pietà" (1499) Michelangelo. Saint Peter's Basilica, Vatican City, Rome, Italy. It is the 1st of a number of works of the same theme by the artist. The statue was commissioned for the French cardinal Jean de Billheres. The sculpture, in Carrara marble, was made for the cardinal's funeral monument, but was moved to its current location, the first chapel as one enters the basilica. It is the only piece Michelangelo ever signed & balances Renaissance ideals of classical beauty with naturalism.
