Abstract :
Michelangelo and his younger contemporary Rosso Fiorentino were formed within an artistic culture that grappled with a tension between two modalities of the image: on one hand, as manifestation of divine authority and authentic object of devotion and, on the other, as emotionally affecting and illusory simulation of presence - including divine presence - created by human virtuosity. The notion of the 'divine' artist became attached to Michelangelo in particular, and Rosso and others reacted in certain works that questioned the legitimacy of his enterprise. This critique, internalized in turn by Michelangelo himself, determined the transgressive character of his later monumental works. ;
