    Michelangelos pieta- such an amazing sculpture, need to see it in real life

  • Elissa Winer

    "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.

    Created by Michelangelo (1475-1564), the Pieta depicts the Virgin Mary holding her only son, Jesus Christ, in her arms. Prior to sculpting the Pieta, Michelangelo was not a very known artist. He was only in his early twenties when he was told, in 1498, to do a life sized sculpture of the Virgin Mary holding her son in her arms. In about two years, from a single slab of marble, Michelangelo created one of the most beautiful sculptures ever. Pieta is housed in St. Peter's Basilica, Vatican City.

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.
