It’s a Masterpiece.
On November 1, 1512, a 37-year-old artist known as Michelangelo revealed his masterpiece of sacred Renaissance artwork, the Sistine Chapel (“Capella Sistine) ceiling in the Apostolic Palace of the Vatican in Rome. Commissioned by the Pope (Julius II), the work took Michelangelo four years to complete.
