MICHAELANGELO ------- 1475
Among the world's most celebrated artists, Michelangelo was one of the foremost figures of the Renaissance.
The marble David, which he completed before his 30th birthday, set a new standard in nude sculpture, and his paintings in the Sistine Chapel are among the most influential frescoes in the history of Western art.
A true "Renaissance man," he also was an architect and poet and wrote more than 300 sonnets.
