Death Year : 1564
Country : Italy

Michelagniolodi Lodovico di Lionardo di Buonarroti Simone was born in Caprese in Tuscany. He attended Latin School and studied painting in the workshop of the Ghirlandaio brothers and sculpture with Bertoldo, a pupil of Donatello. Michelangelo’s early training came from the great Florentine masters of the Low Renaissance: Giotto, Masaccio, Donatello, and Signorelli. A true Renaissance man, he was gifted as a painter, a sculptor, an architect, an engineer, and a poet, but his preference was for sculpture with its plastic possibilities for the revelation and exaltation of the human body.
