Embrace Your Creative Process Spread
On This Day
Michelangelo claimed he only had to look inside the stone to discover the image he sought to create. While making David, he said he needed only to chip away at what was not the image to release the truth of his masterpiece.
Painter, poet, architect, and sculptor Michelangelo was born on this day in 1475. Considered one of the greatest artists to have ever lived, his volume of work and influence on the development of Western art remain voluminous. His best-known works include sculptures of David, the Pietà, and sublime frescoes in the Sistine Chapel.
