I'm still thinking of Italy and Greece and all of the goodies I'll get to see. This month is dedicated to the Renaissance so I'm really getting to (re)learn all about these gems in advance.
*It's been a long time since I took classes on the Rinascimento.
|San Lorenzo (with projected facade), Florence.|
|Mocking of Christ, Fra Angelico, 1438, San Marco Monastery, Florence, fresco.|
Of course, the Renaissance is not complete without the Greco-Roman world!
|Nike, 410 BCE, Acropolis Museum, Athens.|
|Arch of Titus, Rome.|
|St. Mark's, 13th c., Venice.|
|Rape of Proserpina, Bernini, 1621, Rome.|
Really looking forward to seeing this.
| Primavera (detail), Botticelli, tempera, 1480. Uffizi, Florence. |
