Of the ninety years of Michelangelo's life, three quarters of a century was consecrated to his great works of art. The unexcelled sculpture figures and the impassioned sonnets suggest two facets of his complex creative personality. The painter of the Sistine Chapel, the sculptor of the Medicean tombs, the architect and the writer indicate the versatility of his gifts and the heritage he has bestowed upon mankind.
