“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.”
– Michelangelo Buonarroti

About Michelangelo Buonarroti
Michelangelo Buonarotti, the Renaissance sculptor and painter, is
considered one of the world’s greatest artists. He was born in Tuscany
on March 6, 1475. He apprenticed to a painter at age 13, infuriating his
father, who considered art menial work. By age 25, he had sculpted one
of his finest works, the Pietà, in St. Peter’s. Working alone, he took
four years to paint more than 400 figures on the Sistine Chapel ceiling.
He also designed St. Peter’s dome and is perhaps best known for his
iconic statue of David. He died on February 18, 1564.
