You'll find famous works from artists like Fra Angelico, Bellini, Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Giotto and Masaccio - the list reads like a "Who's Who" from your college art history classes.
Costumers: To see an example of a painting with great period headcoverings and what appears to be an intricately embroidered sleeve, check out Bellini's Presentation at the Temple. Here's how to get there:
- Scroll down and click on "Giovanni Bellini" (under "Artists")
- Click on the first painting (Presentation at the Temple).
Isn't that beautiful? Such masterful presentation of complicated folds of cloth, and lovely depictions of both garb and faces.
Illuminators: To see an example of a procession which might inspire a scroll, go to:
- Scroll down and click on "Ambrogio Lorenzetti" (under "Artists")
- Click on the last painting (Effetti del Buon Governo, Detail).
I just love the queen's weird saddle and the harness on the horses. I can so see using some of these elements in a scroll for an equestrian award, can't you?
