Despite making few forays beyond the arts, his versatility in the disciplines he took up was of such a high order that he is often considered a contender for the title of the archetypal Renaissance man, along with his rival and fellow Italian Leonardo da Vinci. Michelangelo's output in every field during his long life was prodigious; when the sheer volume of correspondence, sketches, and reminiscences that survive is also taken into account, he is the best-documented artist of the 16th century. Two of his best-known works, the Pietà and David, were sculpted before he turned thirty. Despite his low opinion of painting, Michelangelo also created two of the most influential works in fresco in the history of Western art: the scenes from Genesis on the ceiling and The Last Judgment on the altar wall of the Sistine Chapel in Rome. As an architect, Michelangelo pioneered the Mannerist style at the Laurentian Library. At 74 he succeeded Antonio da Sangallo the Younger as the architect of Saint Peter's Basilica. Michelangelo transformed the plan, the western end being finished to Michelangelo's design, the dome being completed after his death with some modification. In a demonstration of Michelangelo's unique standing, he was the first Western artist whose biography was published while he was alive. Two biographies were published of him during his lifetime; one of them, by Giorgio Vasari, proposed that he was the pinnacle of all artistic achievement since the beginning of the Renaissance, a viewpoint that continued to have currency in art history for centuries. In his lifetime he was also often called Il Divino ("the divine one"). One of the qualities most admired by his contemporaries was his terribilità, a sense of awe-inspiring grandeur, and it was the attempts of subsequent artists to imitate Michelangelo's impassioned and highly personal style that resulted in Mannerism, the next major movement in Western art after the High Renaissance. The sculpture was molded by using the lost-wax casting method and finished with brown patina tarnish allowing intricate work to come through the precious metal. This is an exquisite three-dimensional work of art for anyone who is Carrier Belleuse enthusiast.
Excellent quality bronze sculpture consistent with pictures and description. Very pleased with this purchase.
This is a nice addition to our library shelves. It sits on some home design books and really stands out. I have already received several compliments.
Excellent, beautifully crafted, totally art at it's highest form. Great price point and shipping from UPS, very secure.
The Elephant is amazing
I love it. You guys are master craftsmen. I have a few of your works which are also great .Keep adding artists like Moore and Giacometti. I will purchase any and all that you produce.
Thanks, Marc Silverman Rockville Maryland 20854
Love the blue Havana Man. This site has great bronze art. Best collection I have seen in a long time.
Very presentable and lifelike. Demonstrates dolphins at play and coveys the joy therein.
Lovely piece. I may want another Diana with a dog. Perhaps at a discount. What is available? Expert and fast shipping. You guys are great. Thanks, Rick
Hi folks, I am a figure artist living in a very conservative community where the local art venues are reluctant to exhibit the simplest nudes. To see your array of uncensored realism is encouraging. The one piece I have received from you will hopefully be the beginning of my collection.
I ordered Lady Justice for a very special occasion, I was not disappointed. Before I ordered her, I spent a lot of time looking at different sites worldwide, and decided on Bronzhaus. Ordering/Delivery/Cost were seamless.
I live in Ontario Canada, and delivery was prompt and fast(4 days).
She came wrapped so snug and packed, there was no movement at all, even though Custom's inspection made the box look damaged, she wasn't. The detail is perfect, the colouring is beautiful and varied. Some spots on the finish look "rough" but either by design or accident, this does not deter from her beauty, if anything it gives it a historic weathered look, and makes her look more authentic and regal. Overall, very happy and will be appreciated as a gift.
The ballerina goes so well with the Cirque du Soleil trapeze work. I now have three stick figures from Bronzhaus (I have others that are not stick figures). I love art. I love sculpture. I love beauty. I have several other bronzes for which I have paid in excess of $10,000. I have had other artist friends of mine, when they are making a delivery or just coming for a visit and they always notice the bronzes. Not one of them has ever questioned, criticized or denigrated these works. I do avoid, however, the copies that are well-known in their original state. But for now I am very much enjoying the extra "bay leaf" in the artistic meatloaf that these bronzes bring to my home and garden.
Always consistent high quality! Real treasures in a time of plastic junk offered by others.
Beautiful piece! Glad to own it!
This is a marvelous parody of Rodin's The Thinker. It is well made and detailed. Would make a nice bookend or desktop art object.
