Michelangelo Buonarroti painted the 5382 square feet of popular all around the world Sistine Chapel ceiling over almost 5 years from 1508 to 1512. Before this work he was famous mostly for his sculptures, not paintings. The chapel was opened in 1483, but its interior’s painting wasn’t completed.

Other great painters of the 15th century like Pietro Perugino, Botticelli, and Domenico Ghirlandaio worked on the walls of the Sistine Chapel. On 1st November 1512, the chapel was inaugurated by Julius II with a solemn mass. There are nine central panels show the Stories of Genesis, from the Creation of the Fall of man, to the Floor and the later rebirth of mankind with the family of Noah.
