Statue of Michelangelo in Uffizi Gallery, Florence

Michelangelo (1475-1564) was born in eastern Tuscany, a painter, sculptor, architect, and poet who spent the early part of his career in Florence, where he completed the statue of "David" and the funerary monuments of the Cappelle Medicee. His greatest works, however, the frescoes of the Sistine Chapel, were reserved for Rome.
