♠Oh awesome! Yep, those are the guys I'm studying. I mostly just need to get dates down, so unless you know any pnemonics or anything... Do you maybe have any particular favorite paintings/sculptures from 1300-1500s or so? Maybe I'll add them to my study list :)
Mmm, so much good stuff from those two hundred years. For dates, I think the only thing really is to memorize them. I don’t want to add too much to your study list, so I’ll try to limit it to a top ten in chronological order (Not Easy!)
Wilton Diptych, Anonymous, 1395-1399
Les Très Riches Heures de Duc de Berry, Limbourg Brothers, 1411-1416
(The three brothers died before they could finish it, but I think the existing illuminations show what big plans they had for this manuscript.)
The Arnolfini Portrait, Jan van Eyck, 1434
(The details! The details!)
The Last Judgement, Rogier van der Weyden, 1445-1450
La Primavera, Sandro Botticelli, 1482
(I had the pleasure of seeing this one while I was in Florence. It’s so breathtaking.)
Lady with an Ermine, Leonardo da Vinci, 1489
(Perhaps not Leonardo’s most famous painting, but one that’s special to me, since it was the first work I saw of his in person when I was twelve.)
Pietà, Michelangelo, 1498-1499
Virgin and Child with Saint Anne and John the Baptist, Leonardo da Vinci, 1500-1508
Madonna of the Meadow, Raphael, 1506
Isenheim Altarpiece, Matthais Grünewald, 1515
(I’m so predictable, I know.)
And a bonus one since I have a special fondness for Raphael—The Sistine Madonna, 1513-1514
Those are just a few from my favorites. There are lots, lots more. I don’t want to overwhelm you with paintings of the Virgin and chubby baby Christ (unless it’s a Northern European painting and then Christ is a skinny, malnourished baby).
Yes excellent, thank you!! A lot of these are on my list already :D (I’m just trying to study as many as I can so that hopefully I remember enough to use as examples by the time I have to write the essay lol.)
do me a favour. if a person wearing a long sleeved shirt or a sweatshirt and jeans on a hot day, don’t comment on it. don’t ask why they’re wearing it. don’t say anything at about it.
trust me, they know it’s hot, they know. but their reason for wearing what they’re wearing probably far outweighs the temperature outside.
this is so god damn important

This time last year I was unemployed, broke, and suicidal.
Today, I just got the keys to my first house.
Give it time.
Needed this today
when you hear people preach that it gets better, they aren’t joking. if it’s not better yet, it will be.
this post could literally be saving lives rn and that is why i love this website.
In preschool when I was 5, the boys bathroom had to get a ceiling repair so everyone had to use the girls bathroom and when I was in there some kid named Jimmy walked in.
And that was the first time I saw a penis
genuinely sorry for the people who tried to talk to me and were disappointed by how uncool i am
