The Sistine Chapel ceiling was painted by Michelangelo (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michelangelo) between 1508 and 1512. This is an incredible feat, as fresco is a time-intensive process and he completed this work–70 from the floor– painting from a scaffold lying on his back. He completed this work by himself, and he was a sculptor; he didn’t even like painting.
Scroll through the tour. Select one of the scenes and consider why the artist chose to depict the story in the way that he did. What is included? What is left out? Has the artist exaggerated anything? Why? In what ways are the figures not entirely naturalistic? Using the Feldman Method, analyze and interpret your image.
