Michelangelo Buonarroti (Italian, 1475–1564)
In 1508, Pope Julius II (1444–1513) commissioned Michelangelo to paint a series of ceiling frescos for the Sistine Chapel, a project that became one of the artist’s most celebrated achievements.

The Creation of Adam is arguably the most famous section of Michelangelo’s fresco Sistine Chapel ceiling painted circa 1511–1512.It is traditionally thought to illustrate the Biblical creation narrative from the Book of Genesis in which God breathes life into Adam, the first man.
Michelangelo’s languid Adam was probably inspired by Ghiberti’s Adam on his Doors of Paradise of the baptistery in Florence. Whereas in his, The Creation of Eve, Michelangelo borrows heavily from Jacopo della Quercia’s version on the portal of San Petronio in Bologna. In the Eve panel Michelangelo did not use foreshortening, making the figures difficult to see clearly from the floor of the chapel. In the Creation of Adam, the great artist addresses this problem, with an obvious focus on the enlarged figures of God and Adam.
It is the most well-known of the Sistine Chapel fresco panels, and its fame as a piece of art is rivaled only by the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci. The image of the near-touching hands of God and Adam has become one of the single most iconic images of humanity and has been reproduced in countless imitations and parodies. Along with Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper, The Creation of Adam and the other Sistine Chapel panels are the most replicated religious paintings of all time.
