An old (Renaissance?) phrase in which an artist doesn’t put


I think I remember back in school they taught us a phrase, although I'm shady on the details, possibly Latin, possibly during the Renaissance, possibly related to Michelangelo, and for all I know, none of that is accurate, but it was a phrase that sort of meant when a work of art is not credited, where the artist doesn't take credit for it, because the concept is that the credit is owed to God alone, so, as a result, the artist waives acknowledgement of creating his piece, such as not signing it. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? I'm pretty sure this was something I learned in whatever school before. If it's an actual thing, I'm trying to find out what the phrase is. Credit to God alone, or something like that, but in another language, maybe Latin or Italian. Thanks
