Art in Context Part 6: Late Michelangelo

Art in Context 6-Part Lecture Series: Masters of Italian Art: The High Renaissance in Rome, Florence, and Venice

Presented by Dr. Lisa Boutin Vitela, Professor of Art History, Cerritos College

Part 6: Late Michelangelo
The course concludes with an examination of the latter half of Michelangelo’s career. Moving beyond the calm, order, and balance of his High Renaissance style, Michelangelo’s paintings and sculptures of the 1530s and 1540s embody a restlessness that is prevalent in Mannerist art. His distorted figures, contorted poses, and curious architectural forms foresaw the changing aesthetic priorities of the mid-sixteenth century.
