Rough Version

A Late Renaissance Moment

Exhibitions get quiet over the Christmas New Year period so I'm finding myself wandering back to the National Gallery a lot at the moment. In particular I'm having a late Renaissance moment. Feeling Salome by Cesare da Sesto (top), Michelangelo's homoeroticism and canvas exposure in The Entombment (middle) and of always and forever the weirdness of Allegory of Venus and Cupid by Bronzino (bottom). I also got very excited about going around with Thomas Dozol and looking at all the portraits with pitch black background.
