As an artist, sculptor, architect and poet Michelangelo Di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni was the archetype of the Renaissance artist, the universal man. As the son of the mayor of Caprese, he spent all his time drawing, much to his father's chagrin. His mother died young and he was raised by a nanny who was married to a sculptor. Michelangelo proved to be so talented that as a 15 year-old, he was noticed by the powerful artists' patron Lorenzo de Medici. His sculpted two of his most famous works before he was 30: the Pieta and the large sculpture of David. A number of years later, he had made such a name for himself that Pope Julius II asked him to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. The artist spent four long years painting the frescoes which garnered admiration from all for their emotional expressiveness, their 'terribilita'. His ground breaking style was later considered the inspiration for Mannerism. 'Il Divino' was a living legend, the first artist to have a biography written about him whilst still alive. However, he was not a pleasant human. Contemporaries described him as a manic, rough, arrogant and sober living, grumpy man, who only lived for his art.
