The Last Judgment by Michelangelo

The Last Judgment is a depiction of the Second coming of CHRIST and the final and eternal judgement by God of all humanity. The dead rise and descend to their fates, as judged by Christ who is surrounded by prominent saints. Altogether there are over 300 figures, with nearly all the males and angels originally shown as nudes; many were later partly covered up by painted draperies, of which some remain after recent cleaning and restoration.

Sistine Chapel ceiling frescos are made up of nine scenes from the Book of Genesis and five smaller scenes which are supported by four naked youths, known as the Ignudi. Between the scenes are twelve men and women who are said to have predicted the birth of Jesus. Above each window are lists of Christ’s ancestors and their portraits. In the spandrels are eight more groups of biblical figures and the entire ceiling is contained by four corner pendentives which illustrate four different biblical stories.

The overarching story of The Sistine Chapel ceiling frescos depicts God’s creation of the world and of man, humanity’s fall from grace and punishment up until the birth of Jesus, the savior of humanity. In the composition, Michalengelo combines symbolism from the church with Renaissance thinking and Humanist philosophy in a remarkably non-conflicting manner. The Ignudi are the most obviously non-biblical figures. The nine main scenes depicted are: The Separation of Light and Darkness; The Creation of the Sun, Moon and Earth; The Separation of Land and Water; The Creation of Adam; The Creation of Eve; The Temptation and Expulsion; The Sacrifice of Noah; The Great Flood; and The Drunkenness of Noah. 

In Michelangelo, Julius commissioned one of the greatest artists of all time to paint one of the greatest artworks of all time: The Sistine Chapel ceiling.

This amazingly and instantly recognizable work is perfect for a lover of fine art.
