What does vasari claim about michelangelo's skill?

User Avatar
Vasari claims right from the first sentence that Michelangelo was a gift from God, sent to Earth to straighten out human art. He calls him "divine" and says that, for instance, if you've seen the "David" you see to see no other work of sculpture. He says that God sent "to earth a genius universal in each art, to show single-handed the perfection of line and shadow, and who should give relief to his paintings, show a sound judgment in sculpture, and in architecture should render habitations convenient, safe, healthy, pleasant, well-proportioned, and enriched with various ornaments. He further endowed him with true moral philosophy and a sweet poetic spirit, so that the world should marvel at the singular eminence of his life and works and all his actions, seeming rather divine than earthy." Basically he says no one came even approach M's skill and that he is the apex of human creativity.

How is Michelangelo portrayed in David?

It sounds like you are confused. Michelangelo created a sculpture 'David'. It shows David at the moment before he loads his sling and kills Goliath.

Who sculpted David?

User Avatar
Other than the bronze David that Donatello made, the better known statue of David is sculpted in marble by Michelangelo, originating from the Biblical hero's portrait in the moments just before battle. Donatello revived a classical form by casting the statue David, which was the first European sculpture of a large, free-standing nude since ancient times. He made sculpture more realistic with natural postures and expressions that reveal personality.

What is the monument for Da vinci in santa croce florence?

User Avatar
There is a plaque inside the church, on the wall honoring Leonardo da Vinci. Many famous Florentines were buried in Santa Croce: Michelangelo, Dante, Galileo, Ghiberti, etc... Leonardo is not buried there (he is buried in France) but the Florentines wanted to honor him so they put up a plaque in his memory.

Who is David Ausabel?

User Avatar
David Ausabel is a cognitive psychologist who is credited with the theory of Advanced Organizers. He believed that in order of new information to be learned, it must be put into a context or linked to knowledge that already exists. His theory used a systems approach and his research was based on conditions of learning. According to Ausabel meaningful learning is considered to be new knowledge that relates to what is already known. He advocated what is known as an 'anchoring idea' eg. a review of previously learned ideas or concepts that relates specificallly to the new information that is to be learned. New information should be organized to answer three simple questions. 1. What will the person learn? 2.What does the person want to learn? 3.What did the person learn?

Michelangelo was a strong Catholic. His patrons were also religious, and a lot of his work comes from the High Renaissance, when religion was the main subject of art. (Post Savana Rola.)
