The Prophet Jeremiah (1508-1512)



The Prophet Jeremiah (1508-1512)
Michelangelo Buonarroti 1475 – 1564
fresco — 1508-1512
Jeremiah 1:1 - The words of Jeremiah the son of Hilkiah, of the priests that were in Anathoth in the land of Benjamin:
Jeremiah was one of the great prophets of the Old Testament. His life and works are collected in the Book of Jeremiah and in the Lamentations.

For this fresco in the Sistine Chapel Michelangelo probably depicted Jeremiah lamenting the fall of Jerusalem. More than a century later, Rembrandt also a lamenting Jeremiah.
