oops….more from Uffizi…

I didn’t realize that I had downloaded more photos. Here goes:

Very bad photo of Botticelli’s “The Birth of Venus”…one of the most famous paintings in the world.

Two by Caravaggio. First, the head of Medusa (painted on a shield)…this is supposedly at the moment Perseus lopped off her head, snakes still writhing.

Bacchus, god of wine…I couldn’t resist (also bought a refrigerator magnet of this painting…how kitschy!)

A panel with Jesus and Mary…don’t ask me by whom. As I said, there were hundreds of these.

Finally, a view of the Duomo and Bell Tower from the top floor of the museum.

OK – “art lecture” over!
