Michelangelo di Buonarroti

Michelangelo di Buonarroti

(1475 - 1564)
Born: Caprese, Italy
Style: High Renaissance
Famous Works:
  • The Doni Tondo (1503)
  • David (1501-04)
  • Sistine Chapel Ceiling Frescoes (1508-12)
Believing in the Neo-Platonist theories, Michelangelo thought his genius was bestowed upon him by a divine source. After entering the studio of Domenico Ghirlandaio, he was invited into the circle of Lorenzo dè Medici, where he was exposed to a circle of humanists, as well as classical masterpieces. Michelangelo had a long and prosperous career in painting, sculpture, architecture, and writing. Many works by Michelangelo are still considered to be among the greatest artistic achievements in history, including his Sistine Chapel frescoes and his magnificent statue of David. Sculpture was always Michelangelo's favorite medium, and he finished the technically magnificent Pieta at only twenty four years of age. Michelangelo's artwork is focused on the human soul, which he thought was the most divine aspect of the body. He, like Leonardo da Vinci, dissected bodies to better understand motion and movement, and as a result he mastered the depiction of the figure. The genius' numerous works make up the majority of the masterpieces of the Renaissance, and are unequaled even today. The power of his work lies in its technical perfection, whether in pigment or marble, and his extreme ability to depict the human condition as well as religious devotion. He considered the sculptor's responsibility to be akin to the ability to create man, and certainly lived up to this ideal. To this day Michelangelo is considered to be the finest artist in the history of Western art.

I absolutely love these markers. The colors are beautiful. They are easy to use as well. These are a good price too.

I've been using Koh-I-Noor Rapidograph Technical Pens since 1969. My aunt bought me my first set when I was 12 and I have used them daily ever since. I love the fact that I can mix my ink colors to match my watercolor or my wardrobe and use "Pelikan Drawing Ink A" almost exclusively. Though the inks made by Koh-I-Noor and Winsor Newton are satisfactory. If you are a beginner, I would NOT recommend purchasing anything smaller than an 0 (0.35 mm). Even as a professional I find cleaning a 4x0 to be a challenge. I work most often with a 2x0, and find them to produce the smoothest flow, if kept clean.

I have had wonderful success with R&F encaustics. They melt and move just as I ask for wonderful pictures. I am working on a water picture now.
