September 1 2009 Renaissance Newsletter

Happy Tuesday everyone!

This week, I'm continuing to explore the alternate side of the Renaissance masters with a short article on Michelangelo's poetry...yes, you heard correctly, poetry. He wrote over 300 and some of them are pretty clever. I'm leaving for Little Rock, Arkansas this afternoon and planning not only to attend the Federation of Genealogical Societies conference but also to see the Renaissance collection at the Arkansas Art Center.

Have a great week everyone!

Here's the latest article from the Renaissance site at

Michelangelo...the poet?
Michelangelo Buonarroti lived from 1475 to 1564. He created many fabulous and famous works of art: David, the Sistine Chapel ceiling, The Last Judgment mural on the back wall of said chapel, but did you know that he was also a poet?
