9781440049910: Mornings in Florence: Being Simple Studies of Christian Art, for English Travellers (Classic Reprint)

If there be one artist, more than another, whose
work it is desirable that you should examine in
Florence, supposing that you care for old art at all, it
is Giotto. You can, indeed, also see work of his at
Assisi; but it is not likely you will stop there, to any
purpose. At Padua there is much; but only of one
period. At Florence, which is his birthplace, you can
see pictures by him of every date, and every kind.
But you had surely better see, first, what is of his
best time and of the best kind. He painted very
small pictures and very large - painted from the age
of twelve to sixty - painted some subjects carelessly
which he had little interest in - others, carefully with
all his heart. You would surely like, and it would
certainly be wise, to see him first in his strong and
earnest work, - to see a painting by him, if possible,
of large size, and wrought with his full strength, and of
a subject pleasing to him. And if it were, also, a
subject interesting to you yourself, - better still.
