Art history ruminations from a waterfowl. Honk honk.


"The story of the adulterous woman is taken from St. John’s Gospel in the New Testament. In the biblical text, a woman caught in the act of adultery has been brought to the Temple to be judged… Holding the hand of the accused, Jesus is seen here declaring to the scribes and Pharisees around him: ‘He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.’ The figure representing Jesus bears the tell-tale physical traits of one of Cranach’s northern German countrymen." - National Gallery of Canada

I know as an art historian this should make me sad because someone painted over a historic painting but I just can’t stop looking at it. Its… its just so AWESOME like this.

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.

Small ivory devotional altars like this were popular for those who could afford them throughout the medieval and early renaissance era. They acted as a sort of portable prayer station. This one here shows the popular International Gothic style, as evidenced in the gracefully curved figure of the Virgin, and still contains traces of the polychrome paint that would have originally coloured it.

This will probably make me sound like a creep but I REALLY like the way Botticelli depicts eyelids.
