A personal voyage. (site aims.)
The site serves as an introduction into the art of
the period but beyond this, the aim is to encourage viewers to go and look at
art in the real world, some works have a scale and power that can only be
fully realised by seeing them live. Books (and websites) are fine, but it is
live art that really fires the imagination.
We admire and marvel at reproductions of great
works of art be it a painting, or sculpture or a building, however, to stand
before these works and witness their awe-inspiring power is truly an
unforgettable experience. Personal opinions of works that I have seen from
Florence, Rome, Venice, and the Vatican City feature on the site as does an
attempt to describe some of the emotions I felt when viewing these
Italian Renaissance Art serves as a reference for
students, art lovers and for anyone who enjoys viewing paintings and sculptures
just for the sheer pleasure of the visual experience.
