A Painter – Michelangelo

The Sistine  chapel ceiling that Michelangelo painted had become so dirty that the figures were  practically hidden under a layer of grime – above a before cleaning and after cleaning example.

The  elegance and nonchalant grace of his figures portrays a skill level in painting that few achieve – what made his work dense artistically is his use of color and sculpture infused muscle rendering.

Have  eye-catching night!
