About the Event
Living nearly 89 years, Michelangelo Buonarroti's career spanned the glories of Renaissance Florence, the discovery of the New World, the Reformation and the stirrings of the Counter-Reformation, and the pontificates of 13 popes. Many believe Michelangelo’s talent was miraculous and untrained, the product of ‘divine’ genius—a myth that Michelangelo himself promoted by way of cementing his legacy. In honor of Michelangelo's birthday, join art historian Elaine Ruffolo for a look at his greatest masterpiece, the Sistine Chapel.
