Properzia de Rossi was born in Bologna, Italy. Very few women had the opportunity to become sculptors. She was trained by Marcantonio Raimondi the engraver of Raphael's paintings. Properzia de Rossi was a sculptor whose first major success came when she won a competition to do the sculpture for the church of San Petronio. She was also a miniaturist who sculpted on peach stones and cherry pits.

Giorgio Barbarelli da Castelfranco, an Italian painter, one of the seminal artists of the High Renaissance in Venice. Giorgione is known for the elusive poetic quality of his work, and for the fact that only very few (around six) paintings are known for certain to be his work. His career was cut short by the plague. He introduced new pastoral themes in paintings known as poesie - or painted poems

Titian or Tiziano Vecellio was born in a small alpine village of Pieve di Cadore, now not far from the Austrian border, where his family lived for many years. In about 1498, at the age of nine or ten, Titian and his elder brother Francesco were sent to Venice to start their training as painters in the workshop of the mosaicist Sebastiano Zuccato. Though soon Titian left his workshop  and began studying painting.

Titian was one of the most versatile of Italian painters, equally adept with portraits and landscapes (two genres that first brought him fame), mythological and religious subjects. Had he died at the age of forty, he would still have to be regarded as one of the most influential artists of his time. But he lived on for a further half century, changing his manner so drastically that some critics refuse to believe that his early and later pieces could have been produced by the same man. What unites the two parts of his career is his deep interest in colour. His later works may not contain vivid, luminous tints as his early pieces do, yet their loose brushwork and subtlety of polychromatic modulations have no precedents in the history of Western art.

Michelangelo was a small man, perhaps not more than 5' 2" in height and weighing not much more than a muscular 100 pounds. In 1550 Blaise de Vigniere, visiting from France, wrote, "I saw Michelangelo at work. He had passed his 60th year and although he was not very strong, yet in a quarter of an hour he caused more splinters to fall from a very hard block of marble than three young masons in three or four times as long. No one can believe it who has not seen it with his own eyes. With one blow he brought down fragments three or four fingers in breadth, so exactly at the point that if a little more marble had fallen, it would have risked spoiling the whole piece."
