There was many great artist. An art I chose from the Renaissance was the Angel by Michelangelo. Renaissance started by the curiosity around the world. The renaissance started around 1300-1600. It started in Florence, Italy than spreader to Europe. It is important to everyone because of how it was in the history of the world and how events started. It also started because of trade and money. The renaissance ushered in so many changes. I chose this piece by Michelangelo because my sister is an angel. When I was scrolling through pictures of renaissance art I got up to that picture and it stood out to me because it reminded me of my sister. This art can connect to many people which could make it the Santa Barbara Art Museum. The artist I choice was Michelangelo. He was born on March 6,14975 and he died on February 18,1564. He died at age 88. Michelangelo past away weeks before his 89th birthday. He also had a illness that. His full name was Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni. Michelangelo has 4 other siblings and he is the 2nd out five. His father was Leonardo di Buonarrota Simoni. His family was in a banking business. Michelangelo completed the David in 1504 at the age of 25. In 1496 he arrived in Rome. My piece was Angel and I chose it because when I came across it I thought of my sister immediately. Even though the art piece is a guy it is still an angel no matter what. The angel is kneeling and one of the earliest pieces that Michelangelo has made. The angel is made out of carved marble. The sculpture is 51.5 cm. The sculpture was made as a decorative scheme. In The sculpture the hair is greatly curled and he made the clothes look very wrinkly. The wings are drew out and very descriptive. This angel feels human because the position is such a human pose and the look in the face is more human like and not different. I think this sculpture piece is famous because of how good all the details are and how its put together. Michelangelo put it together really good and you can notice whatr's on the sculpture. You notice why the lines are within the ropes which makes it look like its wrinkled and also the details on the wings. I also think it became famous because of the quotes that came to it which were, Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it and I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free. It should be on display here in Santa Barbara because there is many tourists here and would wanna see very great and and old sculptures and knowing that itr's here it could bring more people to Santa Barbara to see it. The world today has connections to the Renaissance because the Renaissance was the starting of many things in the world.The Renaissance is a part of time in history that is very interesting and a part you would wanna know about. Another connection is the joining of arts and sciences. One other connection between the Renaissance and now is the inventions people have made and became big throughout time. The Renaissance created all that we know now.
