Buon compleanno to Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni, the Italian artist born on this day in 1475. Michelangelo and his artworks have been an inspiration to countless people, including the French sculptor Auguste Rodin, who traveled to Italy in 1876 to study the Renaissance artist’s works. In Rome, Rodin contemplated the great paintings in the Sistine Chapel, including “The Last Judgement,” whose impact is evident in Rodin’s monumental work “The Gates of Hell,” which stands at the Rodin Museum.
