Michelangelo's Artistic Grocery List Gives Shopping a Whole New Meaning

Michelangelo, the greatest painters and architects of the Italian Renaissance and possibly of all times, seems to have taken his skills into his kitchen as well as his studio. His works include the David and Pieta statues.

Not only did he paint frescoes on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, his grocery lists are masterpieces as well.

Bibliokelpt has posted an imagine of one of the artist's grocery lists which included detailed text, as well as drawings to help illustrate to his assistants what to pick at the market.

It may have been fun to go to the local outdoor market with Michelangelo's masterpiece grocery list. What one wouldn't want to do, though, is cross out each item as it was purchased!
