Today Was The Birthday Of The GREAT Michelangelo — March 6, 1475.

by Anura Guruge



In my opinion, the GREATEST ARTIST EVER.

Excelled in multiple fields.

A sobering and inspiring life.

He really devoted his life to his work. No real family life or love. He suffered.

I think of him in time of adversity.

The Sublime ‘Raphael’, One Of THE Greatest, Died This Day BUT Might Have Also Been BORN This Day, April 6!

We are NOT sure whether he was born April 6 or March 28.

But we do know that he DIED on April 6, 1520 — way, way too early. April 6 that year was Good Friday. It is said that he died, prematurely, from having had too much sex! What a way to go — though I kind of doubt whether that was what really killed him.

One of my TOP 5 favorite artists and how could be NOT be.

I am very partial to the ‘School of Athens’ and it might even feature on the cover of a future book.

But, let’s take few minutes off today to just savor the work, life and spirit of Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino.

What a MAN. What a talent.


“The School of Athens” at the Apostolic Palace in the Vatican. The person on the steps, leaning on a block of marble is his fellow artist (and competitor) Michelangelo Buonarroti.


‘The Parnassus’ — another painting at the Apostolic Palace, Vatican.


SOME of his work that has struck a chord with I.
