Art quotes by Michelangelo

Michelangelo Buonarroti, the renowned Italian Renaissance artist, sculptor, and painter, left behind a collection of profound quotes that offer insights into his artistic philosophy and approach to creativity. Here are some of the known Michelangelo quotes:

"I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free."

"The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection."

"The greatest artist has no conception that a marble block does not contain within itself."

"Genius is eternal patience."

"Lord, grant that I may always desire more than I can accomplish."

"I am still learning."

"Every block of stone has a statue inside it, and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it."

"If people knew how hard I worked to get my mastery, it wouldn't seem so wonderful at all."

"Trifles make perfection, and perfection is no trifle."

"The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short, but in setting our aim too low and achieving our mark."

These quotes reflect Michelangelo's dedication to his craft and his belief in the potential of art to reveal the beauty and divinity within the materials he worked with. His work, including masterpieces like the Statue of David and the Sistine Chapel ceiling, continues to inspire and awe audiences to this day.
