To continue from my previous entry...here are more random art photos taken on my October trip...
Three of the cenacolo's in Florence...
My favourite, Ghirlandaio's fresco in the cloister of Ognissanti:
The one in Sant'Apollonia, which has a weird brooding atmosphere:
And the one in the Carmine church:
Two Annunciation paintings in Santa Trinita:
From Santo Spirito, a Madonna and baby painting by Donnino and Agnolo di Domenico del Mazziere (the so called "Maestro of Santo Spirito" was recently discovered to be these two brothers):
Michelangelo's "other" pieta, in the Bargello:
(The face of Nicodemus is supposedly a self portrait. I did not "get" this sculpture until I saw it in person and found it very moving. I love the way Nicodemus is leaning gently in to support the body of Christ)
The really cool floor near the main entrance of the Duomo in Florence:
And this one is here not so much for the painting as for the painting's title: "Gualdrada, a Florentine Maiden, refuses to kiss Emperor Otto IV" (you go, girl!)
