Editorial Reviews

This informative program presents a look at the greatest works of art created by this extraordinary artist.

Michelangelo (1475-1564) marked the beginning of the modern artist, the artist who claims total freedom with no compromise. As sculptor, painter, architect and poet, he continued the tradition of the early renaissance and pushed it to its extreme. Although working from princes, lords and pontiffs, he turned the traditional status of the artist from that of a craftsman subordinated to the wishes of his patron into that of a creator with the ultimate power to make aesthetic decisions, prepared to risk his career fro the sake of individualism and freedom.

In 1512, Michelangelo climbed down for the last time from the scaffolding on which he had spent four years of his life painting the Sistine Chapel ceiling, a fresco covering an area of a thousand square meters with over three hundred figures illustrating the Old Testament Book of Genesis.

Format: DVD
I'm only less than 2 minutes into the DVD and this is what I hear: "In 1448, encouraged by a friend, Michelangelo became an apprentice..."

A mistake obviously, but why leave it in? One minute you say he was born in 1475, the next minute he's an apprentice 27 years earlier? Now I don't trust anything I'm going to hear from the presenter...

This is basically an overview, not great detail about the artist, which would take a lot more time than this. I already knew most of what was presented, but there is good video and I did learn a couple of things.
