never seen awful statues?? I think u are forgetting all of Michelangelo’s attempts at sculpting women, the big queer
Damn, how could I forget?
Dented oranges are my favorite type of breast
Michel-I’ve never seen a naked woman-angelo
he literally never saw a woman naked, he used young men as his models for women and just slapped some breasts on them
the more you know
Hello, I’ve come to tell everyone in this post that I hate them. Firstly, you just called a Michelangelo sculpture ‘awful.’ I’m 3000% sure that even his shittiest most unfinished works excel well out of the arena of ‘awful.’
Secondly, yes, he was gay. But does this mean a man who dissected dead bodies to draw them more accurately has never seen a nude female form? No. It doesn’t. Come onnnnn. Here is a drawing Michelangelo did:
He knows how to draw the female form. He just didn’t want to. You are looking at a period of Art History through a modern lens and forgetting to take into account context, standards of beauty at the time, and Michelangelo’s own obsession with musculature, among other things. Androgyny was where it was at during the Renaissance. There are practical, religious, and aesthetic reasons for this, and If you are implying that Michelangelo sculpted masculine women because he lacked knowledge of anatomy you are totally fucking wrong.
Anyway. Michelangelo’s work is beautiful, screw you guys and the LOADS of Art History misinformation on this site. Read some stuff please. (X) (X) (X) (X) (X)
