"Sistine Chapel" Vatican Museums - Sistine Chapel Tip by Frisbeeace
Vatican Museums - Sistine Chapel, Rome: 76 reviews and 213 photos
Michelangelo was commissioned by Pope Julius II in 1508 to repaint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. The work was completed between 1508 and 1512. He painted the Last Judgement over the altar, between 1535 and 1541, being commissioned by Pope Paul III Farnese.
It was somehow difficult to admire the work of Michelangelo standing in the crowd until we were able to sit on the side of the chapel and examine the ceiling thoroughfully.
