Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564, Caprese, Tuscany) was a sculptor, painter, architect, and one of the greatest Italian Renaissance artists. As he had no interest in the family trade, his father sent him for an apprenticeship with Domenico Ghirlandaio. Later, he was later chosen by the renowned Medici family to attend their Humanist academy and had the opportunity to study with Bertoldo di Giovanni, a famous sculpture. Michaelangelo was recognized for his extraordinary talent and received commissions from popes and the Catholic Church.
