In Michelangelo early life he grew up working in a Florentine painter's workshop. So he grew learn about art from him. Some of his early sculptures are the Battle of the Centaurs" and "Madonna Seated on a Step,"

Michaelangelo was the greatest artist of the Italian Renaissance period and arguably of all time. His work demonstrated a blend of psychological insight, physical realism and intensity never before seen. His accomplishment of creating new a different type of art inspired different and more types of art. His peers recognized his extraordinary talent, and Michelangelo got money from some of the most wealthy and powerful men of his day, including popes and others that are with the Catholic Church.

So Michelangelo decided to go on his and create a new style of art. Another one you could learn from him is to work very hard. “If people knew how hard I worked to achieve my mastery, it wouldn’t seem so wonderful after all.”
