I have a thing for colours, for those strange and mostly unknown (to the modern world) materials that – under the hand of skilled artists – turn a piece of wood into a painting: pigments!
Still colours are powerful symbols and have countless different meanings today as in the past times. I believe that this experience will give you the key to interpret and look at art in a new perspective.
Although this is a very unconventional tour of the Uffizi Gallery, I will present you the highlights of the museum. Join me in this entertaining talk though the main rooms of the Uffizi and some off-the-beaten-path spaces of the museum.
What colours used Botticelli to paint his famous “Birth of Venus”? How did Michelangelo used a brush? How much did Leonardo spend for one of his paintings? In this journey through art history, colour is the protagonist, in every shade possible.
Jumping from one book to the other on the argument I didn’t only enrich my knowledge of Renaissance artists, but I also came to believe that colours are a fun approach to art!
We are surrounded by colours and our perception of them is the perfect way to start the experience of art.
