Did you know Michelangelo was hesitant to accept the commission to paint the Sistine Chapel when it was offered to him by Pope Julius II in 1508? As a young man, 33-year-old Michelangelo considered himself a sculptor rather than a painter, and he had no experience whatsoever with frescoes. But, as history tells us, he did accept the job, and his name became synonymous with beauty and success. In total, Michelangelo’s frescoes at the Sistine Chapel cover 12,000-square-feet, and took four years to complete — from 1508 to 1512!
