Speakers: Dr. David Drogin, Dr. Beth Harris
Thanks. The work of art of Annibal Carracciis of an extraordinary beuty. I belive the goddess Fame has not made justice on this one! The comments are great. I only wish there were part two andd three in order to cover all of the passages painted on the curved ceiling. Thanks again. It is marvelous to get to watch such beuty.
Thanks! You guys are great!! This helps a lot with my studies... It would be very helpful as well, to have a written form of the discussed piece or links, books and other references that can make the search easier. Great idea-multimedia art history! :)
I went to see the Carracci today and was amazed by it, but frustrated due to the lack of information at the palazzo farnese. I should have listened to this video beforehand! The explanation is amazing. Thank you.
