Courtyard Vantages

 To begin today, here are three views of the garden courtyard from the world art galleries.


This is from the workshop of Antoine Caron, done circa 1570. It is The Submission of Milan To Francis I.


This work is attributed to Jean Penicaud II. The Crucifixion is circa 1550.


And here we have Scenes From Ovids' Metamorphoses. This is by Antonio di Domino Mazzieri, circa 1525.

  1. The Crucifixion is tragic in colours and atmosphere...

  2. Fortunately there were the painters, otherwise we wouldn't know how people were dressed and how they lived centuries ago. They were our photographers !
