Theme Reveal for the A-Z Blog Challenge!

This is the second year I’ve done this challenge. Last year I did odors, something that should be integral to any fiction writing. This year I’ve taken on something that has been challenging but a lot of fun: Renaissance artists and their art.

I was an art minor in college and took two courses on Renaissance art. Some of my happiest hours were those spent poring over the art books in the college library, learning to recognize the artists and their work.  Trying to write a short summary of the artist’s life, deciphering their contribution to the development of art at the time, and picking appropriate examples has been challenging.

I hope you enjoy the results!

Don’t forget to left click on each of the pictures to see each work of art in all it’s detail and beauty!

  1. You know, I’ve disliked the Arnolfini wedding ever since my third year at secondary school (age c13) when it hung on the classroom wall in front of me all day every day 😀 It’s very clever, though. Looking forward to learning something about Renaissance art with you 🙂

  2. Wow, this is so cool! I’m new to the A-Z Challenge, but I’m loving it already. I loved art history in college too, (in fact it lead me back to making my own art!) so I’m really looking forward to learning more.

      1. I actually work in a service laboratory, so no grants or papers for me. As to how I came to writing stories, I still wonder about that myself. Sometimes it feels more like magic, unable to be explained by science at all!

  3. I’m looking forward to your A to Z posts. Renaissance art is a favourite of my wife’s and I may actually learn something that doesn’t result in her staring at me with a blank expression.
