Michelangelo Buonarroti , conocido en español como Miguel Ángel, fue un arquitecto, escultor y pintor italiano renacentista, considerado uno de los más grandes artistas de la historia tanto por sus esculturas como por sus pinturas y obra arquitectónica.[1]​ Desarrolló su labor artística a lo largo de más de setenta años entre Florencia y Roma, que era donde vivían sus grandes mecenas, la familia Médici de Florencia y los diferentes papas romanos.

Fue el primer artista occidental del que se publicaron dos biografías en vida: Le vite de' più eccellenti pittori, scultori e architettori, de Giorgio Vasari, publicada en 1550 en su primera edición, en la cual fue el único artista vivo incluido,[2]​ y Vita de Michelangelo Buonarroti, escrita en 1553 por Ascanio Condivi, pintor y discípulo de Miguel Ángel, que recoge los datos facilitados por el mismo Buonarroti.[3]​ Fue muy admirado por sus contemporáneos, que le llamaban el Divino.[4]​ Benedetto Varchi, el 12 de febrero de 1560, le envió una carta en nombre de todos los florentinos diciéndole:

... toda esta ciudad desea sumisamente poderos ver y honraros tanto de cerca como de lejos... Vuestra Excelencia nos haría un gran favor si quisiera honrar con su presencia su patria.

Triunfó en todas las artes en las que trabajó, caracterizándose por su perfeccionismo.[a]​ La escultura, según había declarado, era su predilecta y la primera a la que se dedicó; a continuación, la pintura, casi como una imposición por parte del papa Julio II, y que se concretó en una obra excepcional que magnifíca la bóveda de la Capilla Sixtina; y ya en sus últimos años, realizó proyectos arquitectónicos.

Frases Miguel Ángel

„The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.“

—  Michelangelo Buonarroti
Attributed without citation in Ken Robinson, The Element (2009), p. 260. Widely attributed to Michelangelo since the late 1990s, this adage has not been found before 1980 when it appeared without attribution in E. C. McKenzie, Mac's giant book of quips & quotes.

„I am still learning.“

—  Michelangelo Buonarroti
Variant translation: Still I learn! As translated by Ralph Waldo Emerson in "Poetry and Imagination" (1847) Inscribed next to an image of Father Time in a child's carriage, as quoted in Curiosities of Literature (1823) by Isaac Disraeli. Disraeli's attribution is, however, spurious. The attribution is retraceable to Richard Duppa's The lives and works of Michael Angelo and Raphael (London, 1806), where the author mistakenly attributes a drawing by Domenico Giuntalodi to Michelangelo Buonarroti. The original motto, properly spelled in Duppa as "ANCHORA IMPARO," was popular throughout the 1500's (thus in the course of Michelangelo's life), signalling the return of old age to childhood (bis pueri senex). The motto appeared in one of Giuntalodi's drawings (an image known to us through engravings and etchings by contemporaries), together with the indication that learning is a lifetime endeavor (a Latin phrase from Senaca's 76th Letter to Lucilius is cited to this effect). However, Giuntalodi's drawing--where time's elapse (an hourglass) stands before man's quest for learning--conveighs the "anchora imparo" message in a finely satyrical manner, suggesting the futility of human endeavors (for a kindred antecedent, see 1 Corinthians 13:11), with a specific allusion to humanist learning. See Sylvie Deswarte-Rosa, " Domenico Giuntalodi, peintre de D. Martinho de Portugal à Rome http://www.persee.fr/web/revues/home/prescript/article/rvart_0035-1326_1988_num_80_1_347709", in Revue de l'Art, 1988, No. 80, pp. (52-60). Deswarte-Rosa misleadingly links the "ancora imparo" motto to Dante Alighieri, to whom Deswarte-Rosa attributes a modified version of a citation that Dante offers with critical intent of Seneca in Convivio IV.12.xi. Throughout Convivio IV.12, Dante distinguishes between ordinary empirical learning (depicted at best as futile) and a philosophical learning returning to "first things." Dante's conclusion is that, "lo buono camminatore giunge a termine e a posa; lo erroneo mai non l'aggiunge, ma con molta fatica del suo animo sempre colli occhi gulosi si mira innanzi"--"The good walker arrives at an end and a rest; the one who errs (i.e. goes astray) never reaches it, but with great effort of the will always with gluttonous eyes looks ahead of himself"; ibid. xix.
