The High Renaissance is characterized by impressive themes and styles. A cultural and intellectual movement of the Renaissance that emphasized material concerns as a result of the rediscovery and study of the literature, art, and civilization of ancient Greece and Rome. It is a system of thought that centers on humans and their values, capacities, and worth. In Michelangelo’s sculpture, David is naked and may represent wealth, heroism, and divine qualities. The sculpture may also represent Michelangelo’s own perception of the perfection of man, since he himself was gay. Michelangelo’s David is probably the most famous and recognized sculpture in the world. Even with modern technology a more accurate depiction of a man in stone, it would be difficult to make a more accurate duplicate of man than what Michelangelo did with the naked eye. The High Renaissance helped shape David and bring to him life like qualities.

For thoes who: Does this sound right???
Homosexual is fine - gay sounds a little off - but im not too sure what is sexuality has to do with his perception of the 'perfection of man'....but then im no expert.

If you find yourself using the same descriptive word multiple times in a paragraph try using dictionary.com - and use the thesaurus option - will give you some other viable options.

Nice job so far.

while michaelangelos homosexuality is widely accepted it is highly debated by scholors. people often quote a group of poems he wrote to a younger contemporary, whose work he loved and admired. he wrote the same type of poetry to women interrests in his life. having studied him quite a bit i believe he was celibate and he was definitely one whose life was devoted to God and his spirituality. he worked so much he didnt really have time for an actual love interrest or relationship.

Thanks Tony,

Its certainly an interesting subject - a man with that degree of genius must have found it difficult to relate to other people.......

i love the debate of who was the greater artist. michealangelo vs. davinci.

michelangelo was definitely a surely (sp?) character. he was aloof, pretty mean and nasty, carried himself like a common laborer, often working for weeks on end with little sleep or bathing. many looked at him as down right filthy in demeanor and appearance. his social skills were definitely limited, and he had many run ins with the pope who gave him most of his commisions, getting beaten with a stick and almost thrown into the stench (prison) for disobedience.

leonardo on the other hand was very worldly, often wearing the finest clothes and hair oils, perfumes etc. hanging out with kings, queens, dignitaries, philosophers, noblemen, etc. eating the finest foods. he knew how to enjoy life. there was quite a rivalry between the 2 and even to some degree a hatred. they were polar opposites. while it seemed leonardo had a carefree attitude about his work, michaelangelo was almost haunted by his. he was miserable alot of his life and it was like he was possessed when he worked.

oh, and mention that "rennaisance" means "rebirth" in latin/italian in your intro. then say how it was a rebirth of the classical roman/greek period.

Seems like people who are exceptionally gifted in one area are often deficient in another, often it seems to be people skills.

You get these massively talented mathematicians who can do amazing calculations in the blink of an eye - yet are unable to dress themselves or make a cup of coffee (sounds like me after a heavy saturday night)

I haven't made a massive study of either artist, or art in general but I have visited the Louvre - which was so huge you couldnt possibly see it all.

Al Davis will be back to normal this year, and that's all that matters...

Speaking of Arts and Humanities, up until a few days ago I'd always thought that Hercules was killed by the the Centaur Nessus, but I actually just read that Hercules killed Nessus with an arrow dipped in the Hydra's blood. Hercules wife dipped his shirt in Nessus' then contaminated blood, and when Hercules put the shirt on he died.

You learn something new every day!
