Michelangelo’s Art: the “Unfinished”

Michelengelo’s art: the “unfinished”
Michelangelo Buonarroti is mainly known for sculptures like “Pietà” and “David” or for frescos like “Il Giudizio Universale”, perfect works, you might say. Anyway an other technic used by Michelangelo is the so called “unfinished”. He employed this technic to express the opposition between the spirit and the matter, the order and shapeless. He created “imperfect” works to express perfectly a message and a philosophy. The most relevant work is the “Prigioni”.
