|Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564) was one of the most famous artists in the world. He was a painter, a sculptor, an architect as well as a poet. When he was 12 years old, Michelangelo began to learn to paint as an apprentice to the most popular painter in Florence. Before he completed his apprenticeship, he stopped painting and began to work as a sculptor at the age of 16. This was the beginning of a new life for Michelangelo when he began to create amazing paintings and sculptures. Among the most famous of his works is the painting on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. His paintings show the history of the world according to the Bible. It was not painting on the high ceilings that was difficult but also the technique that Michelangelo used. He had to paint the damp ceiling on which plaster had been freshly laid and complete the section before the paint dried out. He worked standing in an upright position for many hours at end and often complained of a stiff neck and of paint dripping in his eyes. Michelangelo also designed the Medici Chapel. In it, he sculpted two tombs for two princes of Florence. He moved out of Florence before he completed the Chapel. In his old age, Michelangelo wrote some of his finest poetry. He died at the age of 75.
