BIO | ОПИСАНИЕ
Perhaps the most famous statue in the world today is the statue of David by Michelangelo. In 1501 Michelangelo was commissioned to create David by the Arte Della Lana (Guild of Wool Merchant), who was responsible for the upkeep and the decoration of the Cathedral in Florence. For this purpose, he was given a block of marble, which Agostino di Duccio had already attempted to fashion forty years previously, perhaps with the same subject in mind. Michelangelo places him in the perfect contrapposto, as in the most beautiful Greek representations of heroes. The right-hand side of the statue is smooth and composed while the left-hand side, from the outstretched foot all the way up to the disheveled hair is openly active and dynamic. The muscles and the tendons are developed only to the point where they can still be interpreted as the perfect instrument for a strong will, and not to the point of becoming individual self-governing forms. Once the statue was completed, a committee of the highest-ranking citizens and artists decided that it must be placed in the main square of the town, in front of the Palazzo Vecchio, the Town Hall. It was the first time since antiquity that a large statue of a nude was to be exhibited in a public place.
