Son and I have been studying art for homeschool. Right now we're talking about the Renaissance and the rise of humanism.
Andrea Mantegna's 1474 “Ludovico Gonzaga, His Family and Court”
in the Camera degli Sposi, Palazzo Ducale, Mantua, Italy.
I'm especially intrigued with the artist's portrayal of bodies often left out of great art. Instead of an image of dwarf as one of humor or pity or childishness, the vision is a real person, a proud adult woman.
