Dru:

Thank you for the thread and the pictures.

Like Niagara Falls, no matter how many times I see them, Michelangelo's
works just leave me dazed and speechless by their awesome beauty.

Love and Peace,

Thank you, Bianca, it leaves me speechless, too.  No other artist can match Michelangelo for the sheer beauty of his work, with the possible exception of Da Vinci.  Michelangeko's body of work was far more extensive than Leonardo's, though.

Have you ever seen any of these artworks in person?

No, Dru, I have never seen his works in person although I have been to St.
Peter's, but not in the Vatican itself. 

I have never been to Florence, as I come from the central part of Italy on
the Adriatic Sea, just south of the Republic of San Marino.

I have never gone home alone and the others have always been in a rush,
after landing in Rome, to get 'home' and be with family.  But then, there are
plenty of art works and antiquities where I come from also.  As a matter of
fact my hometown, Ascoli Piceno, is far older than Rome, which was founded
in the 8th century BCE.

Getting back to Michelangelo, I DO like him better than Leonardo Da Vinci.
Da Vinci's genius was in diverse fields.  Michelangelo stayed with his art.

I would like to ask you to please put some pictures here of his 'unfinished'
works.  The majority of them were letft like that intentionally.  One of them
is also a 'Pieta'.  I just love them.  They truly illustrate his theory that marble
just held the figures within itself, waiting for his chisel to liberate them.

Thank you, Dru. With Love and Peace,
Bianca

Sure, Bianca, I can find some, and thank you for letting me in on some of your life experiences.  I would love to go to Italy someday!



Michelangelo, Unfinished Bound Slave (1519-36)
Marble, height 208 cm
Galleria dell'Accademia, Florence
   
             
Unfinished Bound Slave 
       
                                            by Beth Houston — Michelangelo, c. 1519

 
Reduction of the given mass creates
A sculpture’s final form: This incomplete
Emerging torso bears its wrestled weight’s
Chaotic, unshaped mind; no freed, discrete
Or fully human body’s bulk evolves
Or comes alive. His feet abort, still sunk
Deep in the primal soup, each leg dissolves,
The **** just extends the uncarved hunk
Of rock. The flexed position’s torque suggests
There’s movement, but its energy stops, stuck
In stasis. Here a fallen angel rests,
Manifests: Sisyphus cursing his luck,
Slave to his truth, extinguished fire his own
Work in its vise, grasped in a hand of stone.

Thank you, Dru!

See what I mean?  The Bound Slave would not have had the same impact if

it was finished.

Keep them coming, if you will.   What a feast for the eyes!!!

Love and Peace,
Bianca
