The Creation of Adam
God is depicted as an elderly bearded man wrapped in a swirling cloak while Adam, on the lower left, is completely naked.

About the artist
Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564), was arguably the most famous artist of the Italian Renaissance, and inarguably one of the greatest artists of all time. He considered himself a sculptor, primarily, but is equally well known for the paintings he was induced (grudgingly)

He presents an image of total artistic power – in the imaginative scope of his conceptions, in the immense labour of their making, in the straining muscular force of the bodies he depicts.
The following are some popular oil painting reproductions of Michelangelo paintings:
