A mid-career crisis is a story as old as time and shared by some of the greats, including Michelangelo and Dante. While Michelangelo completed the sculpture of David and the roof of the Sistine Chapel before he turned 40, it was at age 55, after a lull of 15 years, that he created the Medici tomb. This masterpiece was followed by, considered by some to be his most complex work. Covering the altar wall of the Sistine Chapel, the famous mural was recently captured in a cheeky photograph of actor Russell Crowe (58) at a preview. There’s something appropriate about a man in his 50s being impressed by the work of another man in his 50s.
