Friday Fave

My love for Renaissance art has been renewed!  After studying in Rome for a semester, taking various trips to Florence and Venice and studying only art history, I needed a little break from Italian Renaissance art. Now, five and half years later (WOW), I'm reminded how inspiring and breathtaking the period was.

Here's one of my favorite works by the short-lived High Renaissance Venetian artist Giorgione (Italian 1477/8-1510).

 Giorgione, Portrait of a Young Woman (Laura), 1506
Oil on canvas mounted on panel, 
41 x 34 cm

Happy weekend!
