ART OF THE MONTH

THE CREATION OF ADAM
Adam&God

LOCATION:
Sistine Chapel, Vatican City
Artist: Michelangelo (1475-1564)

The Creation of Adam is the most famous of the frescos painted by Michelangelo on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City.

In 1508 Pope Julius II commissioned Michelangelo to paint a series of frescos for the Sistine Chapel.  It is believed Michelangelo finished this particular fresco somewhere between 1511 and 1512 illustrating the biblical narrative from the Book of Genesis in the Bible.

The image of the near-touching hands of Adam and God  has become one of the most widely reproduced images of art.
