Sometimes, while judging a famous man, we get more insights from trivial things related to his life. In this case, a handwritten grocery list prepared by Michelangelo is something profoundly remarkable. See how he prepared his grocery list by drawing objects rather than writing them. A true artist he was! This is how he would give a list to his illiterate servant to fetch groceries from market. Art wasn’t his profession or even passion. It was his life. This simple casual list prepared by him has in itself a whole philosophy and hints of burning artistic passion.

This list wasn’t his artistic masterpiece but it tells something about Michelangelo which even his other masterpieces couldn’t. Take a bow in awe!
