Michelangelo was ‘an exemplar sent by God to the men of our arts’. Thus wrote his contemporary, Giorgio Vasari, who promulgated the idea of Michelangelo as ‘divine’, an epithet that has endured ever since. The legend of Michelangelo as heroic genius, constantly blazing new trails and achieving superhuman feats, was born through Vasari’s quill. While the reality about the artist behind the myth grows ever clearer, Vasari’s words still resound with the ring of truth, for through his exceptionally long career, Michelangelo exerted an influence on generations of artists.
