Michelangelo’s Pieta


This sculpture Pieta was one of Michelangelo’s defining creations, instantly establishing his fame and his place as arguably the greatest sculptor of all time. At the age of 23, Michelangelo was commissioned by French Cardinal Jean de Bilhères to create the Pieta, originally as a tomb monument for the cardinal’s funeral. However, it went on to become so successful that it was moved to its present location inside St. Peter’s Basilica in the first northside chapel, right after the entrance. The Pieta is the only sculpture that Michelangelo ever signed.
