He has triumphed not only over all those artists who have almost vanquished Nature herself, but without a shadow of a doubt he has surpassed the most celebrated ancients whose works are so praised.”—Giorgio Vasari (1550) 1475: Born in a village near Florence; nursed by a stone mason’s wife 1490-92: “Discovered” by Lorenzo de’ Medici; resides in Medici Palace 1505-13: Patronized by Pope Julius II in Rome (Sistine Chapel, etc.) 1513-34: Patronized by Popes Leo X and Clement VII (son and nephew of Lorenzo de’ Medici) in Rome and Florence
