Even if you’re not familiar with the details of the Biblical gospels, Michelangelo’s Pieta will resonate with audiences of all cultures and levels. Michelangelo, one of the three great artists of the Renaissance, shines through the history of art with his sculptures of astonishing expression. The Pieta, now in St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican, is one of the most famous works of his career. More than once during his long life, Michelangelo set out to create a work on the same subject. The evolution of different styles in different periods condenses the great and complex emotion of the Virgin Mother to give her only son to save mankind into eternal classics. Michelangelo carved four works related to the pieta theme during his lifetime. But the provenance of three is clear: the Basilica of St. Peter in the Vatican, the Museum of the Cathedral of Florence, and the Rondanini Museum in Milan’s Sforza Castle. the statue of Mary and Jesus Statue Michelangelo St Pieta, 1555, is still a matter of contention, at least according to the Accademia in Florence.
