Abstract:

In 1504, The Informal Rivalry between two of the most celebrated artists in Florence became a direct competition. Michelangelo was commissioned to paint a scene from the ancient Battle of Cascina on a wall of the Palazzo Vecchio in the same room where Leonardo da Vinci has already been commissioned to paint a scene from another great Florentine victory, the Battle of Anghiari. As the paintings progressed, Michelangelo set out to prove that his work, not Leonardo's , embodied the future of art. In fact, the influence of both is visible in the works of subsequent generations of artists.
