Pain and despair and also hope portrayed Michelangelo in his early history of mankind: the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican. When he created this Vault between 1508 and 1512 the main proponents of the High Renaissance and pioneer of Mannerism as a sculptor and painter played a central role in the artistic and intellectual life of Italy.

Michelangelo Buonarroti was born in 1475 in the Tuscan Caprese. He was educated by the painter Domenico Ghirlandaio, the sculptor may at Bertoldo di Giovannis being the study of the Antiquities of great influence.

From 1496 to 1501 Michelangelo in Rome was active, where among others the "Pietà" for St. Peter's was built. Untill 1504 he worked in Florence at the monumental statue of "David", which is still the closely relation to the ancient world. The following sculptures mark the transition to the Mannerism.

In 1505 Michelangelo was commissioned for the tomb of Pope Julius II, but only after the death of 1513 in reduced and could be completed as the obstinate artist without the client agreement. Until 1516 the "bound slaves" and "Moses" emerged. As an architect he should be working for the Medicis, but could not do the planned construction and developed design principles, which started in 1521 in the staircase of the Laurentian library in Florence. From 1534, Michelangelo lived in Rome.

Michelangelos works are characterized with religious theme and architectural plans such as the construction of St. Peter's Church or of Palazzo Farnese. We can learn a lot through his letters and sonnets about Michelangelo, who died in 1564.
