  • Michelangelo 1475-1564  
  • Michelangelo paints biblical scenes in the Sistine Chapel
  • Is Michelangelo a humanist?
  • Michelangelo was an Italian Sculpture during the Renaissance time period. Michelangelo goal was to do what he loved and paint and sculpt for the people of this time to gaze at. Three of his most famous works would have to be, Pieta which captures sorrow Mary as she holds dead Christ, The Statue of David which recalls harmony and grace of ancient Greek tradition and the Sheppard that killed the great Goliath, and finally the painting in the Sistine Chapel that depicts the biblical world of the bible.
  • Raphael 1483-1520
  • This is the Sistine Chapel, and the most famous artwork of Michelangelo is what he painted on the inside, all the biblical scenes about people in the bible. This shows that he is a humanist because humanists try to look back at the wise work of others to increase the understanding of their own times. Michelangelo looks at the wise people of the new world to increase his chance at understanding the times of his own, also he was paid to paint the Sistine Chapel and it took him years.
  • Raphael's painting of The School of Athens
  • All humanists goal is to work on the here and now in life, stop worrying about the past and focus on the present. This makes Michelangelo a humanist with most of his works of art, because they are all about the here and now. The only exception was the Sistine Chapel because he painted about scenes before his time to gain the understanding of his time and also he was getting paid. In conclusion this determines that Michelangelo is a humanist because he focuses on the here and now, with the exception of the Sistine Chapel that focuses on gaining the understanding of his own times.
  • Raphael a humanist?
  • Raphael was an Italian painter that combined the Christian and Classical Styles of this time. He studied the works of the great Leonardo da Vinci, and Michelangelo because he was a few years younger. His most famous work is the painting of The School of Athens. Th depicts the imaginary gathering of thinkers and scientist during this time. He was also a painter during the Renaissance period/the rebirth of Europe (The Black Death).
  • This is the artwork of Raphael at it's finest,the most famous painting he ever created right here in front of you, it's called "The School of Athens''. This depicts an imaginary scenery of scientists and thinkers from around the world including other great artists like da Vinci and Michelangelo who Raphael himself looked up to as inspiration. This shows that Raphael is a humanist because it's is describing the here and now because of all the great thinkers and scientists of the time are painted with such perfection to show the people that there are solutions to everything if you work together. This does show you a lot about what happening in the world because if it wasn't in this time period then da Vinci and Michelangelo wouldn't be in it.
  • Humanist look at the here and now with worldly subjects on earth instead of looking religiously into older people and not focus on the here and now. Raphael focuses on the here and now when painting his most famous work of, "The School of Athens". This portrays a group of thinkers and scientist grouping up to talk about issues and other things concerning the world. This focuses on the here and now because the painting is of himself with other famous people of this time like da Vinci and Michelangelo.
