Episode 169 – Rome: Michelangelo and the Sistine Chapel Ceiling – Part IV
February 6, 2024

By the time Michelangelo reached the frescoes in the middle of the ceiling, he introduced a major stylistic change, due, most likely, to being able to see the frescoes from the ground. This episode examines the Adam and Eve scenes and how they reflect this stylistic change as well as revealing the major artistic influences on Michelangelo’s paintings. Particular emphasis will be given to one of history’s most famous paintings – The Creation of Man.
