Michelangelo self portraits

The picture above is a particular of a  statue made by Michelangelo, the Pietà Bandini, one of the last Michelangelo works, dated 1547-1555  (Mich. is died in the 1564, in Rome, at 88 years old).

Michelangelo “paint” himself as Nicodemus, the man who bring the dead body of Jesus Christ from the cross to the tomb.

 

Another Michelangelo self portrait is one of the most famous self portrait of the history. Is a particular of the Giudizio Universale,  the Sistin Chapel affresco. Michelangelo paint himself as the skin peeled of San Bartolomeo, who was one of the twelve apostles who followed Jesus; the Saint was flayed alive in Armenia, in this region He was converting too many people arousing the anger and envy of many Armenia local authority. He is dead in the name of God, and for God.

This self portrait wants to describe the inner struggle, the psychological state of mind of the artist in that period.

Bronze sculptures and a draw by Daniele da Volterra

Daniele da Volterra a Tuscan artist, friend of Michelangelo, donated us some portrait in bronze and a draw of his close friend .

Daniele da Volterra produce many paints by Michelangelo draws.

There are a  legend who wants Michelangelo Buonarroti like a grumpy man unwilling to friendships, but in the reality the “grumpy attitude” of Michelangelo was showed for ward off pests and opportunists, who already from his youth tried to take his various art pieces and then selling in the art market, and antiques market; even the opportunists who tried to don’t pay Michelangelo for his own works. In any way for his own close friends, for his own father and brothers He was incredibly generous and affable.

 

Here we have some portrait by Daniele da Volterra.

Pirrip era il cognome di mio padre e Philip il mio nome di battesimo, ma la mia lingua infantile non riuscì a cavarne nulla di più lungo o più esplicito di Pip. Sicché cominciai a chiamare me stesso Pip e Pip mi chiamarono gli altri.

In quanto al cognome Pirrip, mi baso sull’autorità della tomba di mio

padre e su mia sorella – la moglie di Joe Gargery, il fabbro. Non avendo mai visto mio padre o mia madre e neppure una loro immagine (a quei tempi l’era della fotografia era ancora lontana), le mie prime fantasie sul loro aspetto derivarono, assurdamente, dalle pietre tombali. La forma delle lettere su quella di mio padre, suscitò in me la strana idea che fosse un uomo quadrato, robusto, scuro, con capelli neri e ricci. I caratteri e il tenore

dell’epitaffio ANCHE GEORGIANA MOGLIE DEL SUDDETTO, mi portarono ingenuamente a concludere che mia madre fosse lentigginosa e malaticcia. A cinque piccole losanghe di pietra, lunghe circa due palmi, ordinatamente disposte in fila

accanto alla tomba e consacrate alla memoria dei miei cinque fratellini – che

smisero ben presto di arrabattarsi e lottare per sopravvivere – sono debitore

di una certezza in cui credevo fervidamente, e cioè che fossero nati supini

con le mani in tasca, e che ve le avessero tenute sinché erano rimasti su

questa terra.
