The Torment of Saint Anthony

The words "prodigy" and "genius" are most often used lightly. Which is a problem.

Sometimes we need these words to do their job.

A painting thought to be the first work by Michelangelo, completed when he was just 12 or 13 years old, has been snapped up by a gallery in Fort Worth, Texas.
