My name is Michelangelo, I was born during the Renaissance on March 6th 1475 in Florence, Italy
One of my paintings is the Creation of Adam, which was painted on the Sistine Chapels ceiling. It took me 4 years because I couldn't get Gods nose right. It shows God giving life to Adam, the first man.
Humanism is people who try to make lives better and will do anything for it. Michelangelo was a Humanist because he showed his opinion and made many paintings to show scenes in the Bible. He also used perspective which makes the paintings a lot more realistic and better quality, just like the Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci.
Why Raphael is a Humanist.
Raphael is a follower of Leonardo and Michelango a few years younger than them.
Raphael matched more of the Christian and classical styles of paintings. He painted the Madonna, the mother of Jesus. Also another famous painting of his is The School Of Athens he shows a scene of many scientists and great thinkers of his time. Lastly he would include the faces of Leonardo, Michelangelo, and himself in some of his work.
Raphael is a humanist because he follows the footsteps of 2 great artists who are also humanists who thrived and helped create new things in their time period. By being like a humanist you become one yourself like Raphael.
