INDEX NEXT UP LAST ATG Michelangelo Michelangelo

DAVID BY MICHELANGELO In "David" by Michelangelo, the human image is used as the supreme vehicle of expression. It is huge in size and superhuman in its muscular perfection. The contrapposto pose and action in repose clearly expresses the emotion of David. The sculpture has been done in a highly idealised form rather than naturalised for expressive purposes. Early artists were very rigid in mathematical and natural laws [MH] {AP}
