Today marks Michelangelo's 537th birthday, and he once said- I hope that I may always desire more than I can accomplish. Century’s later Michelangelo's desire to accomplish more has been proven by his life long works and dedication to his art and willingness to accomplish more. This is a spirit of a true artist. An artist who does not rest on his laurels, and is eager to improve despite his social status or superfluity in his field of expertise.
Michelangelo's work spanned from drawing, painting, sculpting, and architecture. Each discipline building on one another, and if someone asked today- what do you do? Michelangelo would reply- I'm a sculptor. Linked below is a short documentary of the artist Michelangelo. Plus I added a list of resources for your enjoyment. My favorite book is The Agony and the Ecstasy- A Biographical Novel. Enjoy!
