The Creation of Adam - Michelangelo

This work by Michelangelo is one of nine frescoes inspired by the book of Genesis on the central part of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City. God is depicted as an old bearded man wrapped in a large red cloak that he shares with cherubs. His right arm reaches out to man to give the spark of life. Adam's body is at rest, his left hand is relaxed, his index finger bent: God gives, Adam receives. This relative symmetry reminds us that man is created in the image of God.

The artist

Michelangelo was a Florentine sculptor, painter, architect, poet and town planner of the High Renaissance. His work had a considerable influence on his contemporaries, so much so that his "way" of painting and sculpting was abundantly taken up by the representatives of what would be called Mannerism, which flourished in the late Renaissance. As a competitor to Raphael and Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo was able to impose himself by becoming the official painter, sculptor and architect of the Vatican. Several biographies were published during his lifetime as proof of the admiration he enjoyed among intellectuals and other artists of his time.
