The painting displayed behind us today is my most famous painting. It is known as "The Creation of Adam"
My name is Michelangelo I was born March 6, 1475 and died February 18, 1564. II lived in Florence, Italy during the Renaissance.
This is my greatest work, "The Creation of Adam¨.In my painting that is located in the Sistine Chapel in Rome, God is bringing the first man to life with his touch. I am a humanist because of this painting. This painting took me four years to paint, I made this you encourage you to look at it and make a conclusion for yourself, about what the bible meant. When making this I had to look and think for myself of what this painting meant and how it would make people who viewed it feel and what it would make them think.
Humanism is when people who try to make their life the best they possible can by taking time and trying their best for a desirable outcome. Michelangelo was a humanist. He wanted his painting to be the best it could. He took four years to complete this painting because he wanted people to look at it and do what he did. He wanted them to conclude what they thought the painting meant for themselves.
