Michelangelo Art: Copying The Divine

Michelangelo art reflects the philosophy of Michelangelo himself. The Italian artist once said,

“The True work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection. Only God creates. The rest of us just copy.” – Michelangelo

Michelangelo Buonarroti was a painter, sculptor, poet and architect who showed us, and continues to show us, glimpses of the divine. We’ll explore some of our favorite Michelangelo Art with our very own Michelangelo Top 3!

Edouard Manet Art: Behind the Frame

Edouard Manet was a rebel. If you had been alive in the mid-1800’s, he would have been the boy your mom didn’t want you to hang out with. That’s exactly what made him such a great artist Manet was an upper-class Frenchman with a tendency to disregard the conventions of rich, and expose the world for what he believed it was… all through his art. Let’s get behind the frame and explore Edouard Manet art!

In this post, we’ll dive deep into the mind of Jackson Pollock, the artistic brain behind the enormous splatters we have grown to love.
