The Last Judgment #OnThisDay

On 31st October 1541 Michelangelo Buonarroti finished painting “The Last Judgment” in the Sistine Chapel, Vatican City.

 It is a depiction of the Second Coming of Christ and the final and eternal judgment by God of all humanity. 

The reception of the painting was mixed from the start, with much praise but also criticism on both religious and artistic grounds. Both the amount of nudity and the muscular style of the bodies has been one area of contention, and the overall composition another.
