Cimabue

We are studying the artist Cimabue as part of our Medieval history programme. Our study will only last for a week as we are hoping to finally complete our studies before Advent! As we looked at our three chosen works by the artist we noted that Cimabue was the first  to have human figures tilt their heads.
"Instead of studying his letters, Cimabue spent all his time covering his paper and his books with pictures showing people, horses, houses, and the various other things he dreamt up."

What a great quote :) It obviously worked out for him ;)
We are also studying medieval history at the moment! We haven't begun studying the art of the period yet though, so this is really helpful. Thank you :)
God Bless
