Art history ruminations from a waterfowl. Honk honk.

This is beautiful and all but I must admit it looks a little like the lady in front is farting up a storm.

This blog is likely going to be a little slow until school starts up again but I’ll try to keep posting a modest amount of pretty pictures for you all.

Gaddi was a student of Giotto and he paints in a very similar style except he had an obsession with studying the effects of light. His work at the Baroncelli Chapel in Florence, where this scene is from, is his best known art.

This fresco resides in the San Miniato al Monte Sachristy, Florence. Aretino completed a series of works here depicting stories from the life of St. Benedict, a saint closely associated with exorcisms as is evident above. Aretino was a follower of the revolutionary Giotto di Bondone and his influence can be seen in the rounded tube-like construction of the figures.

Signorelli shows his intense interest in the human form in this fresco from the S. Brixio Chapel in the Orvieto Cathedral. It is a part of a series he did depicting the events of the Apocalypse, which would eventually catch the interest of a young Michelangelo Buonarroti.

This print shows how artists all over Europe in the 16th century could learn from and be influenced by works of art they had never seen in real life, such as this gorgeous fresco from the Villa Farnesina in Rome.
