1540 THE TORMENT OF ST. ANTHONY This is the earliest known painting to be ascribed to Michelangelo, completed when he was only 12 or 13 years old and inspired by an engraving by Martin Schongauer. Housed in the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas, the canvas depicts the popular medieval subject of Saint Anthony attacked in the desert by demons. The saint is beset by temptations, which he resists whilst being ambushed in mid-air by the devils. The painting was previously attributed to the workshop of Domenico Ghirlandaio, under whom Michelangelo had served his apprenticeship.

The saint is beset by temptations, which he resists whilst being ambushed in mid-air by the devils. The painting was previously attributed to the workshop of Domenico Ghirlandaio, under whom Michelangelo had served his apprenticeship. Under that attribution it was bought at a Sotheby’s auction in July 2008 by an American art dealer for $2 million. When the export license was obtained that September, the canvas was brought to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, where it was cleaned of discoloured varnish and later overpainting and closely examined for the first time.

Nevertheless, the Pope was adamant, leaving Michelangelo no choice but to accept. Nevertheless, a war with the French broke out, diverting the attention of the Pope and Michelangelo fled Rome to continue working on his sculpting. The tomb sculptures, however, were never to be finished, as in 1508 the Pope returned to Rome victorious and summoned Michelangelo to return and commence work on the ceiling. The contract was signed on 10 May 1508. The scheme proposed by the Pope was for twelve large figures of the Apostles to occupy the pendentives.
