Conversion of Saul
Creation of Adam
David remains the finest, and most famous sculpture to have come from the career of Michelangelo. It's sheer size is extraordinary and it's symbolism held great importance at the time that it was first unveiled in Florence.
The specific David sculpture page features plenty more information about this highly significant sculpture which remains one of the most important Renaissance artworks from the entire period.
Despite his work at the Sistine Chapel, plus several other stunning frescos, Michelangelo will always be best known as a Sculptor, due to the success of his Pieta, plus, particularly David.
The Last Judgement
This fresco was added to the Altar Wall of the Sistine Chapel and raised the artistic merit of this building even further, having initially created the ceiling fresco series many years earlier.
This artwork features a stunning collection of figures across a huge scene, which was highly typical of Michelangelo at that time. His commissions would often involve large scale works, the likes of which we do not see as often today.
The photo above is from an exceptional art prints which shows the detail from the centerpiece of the fresco in all it's glory.
