As with many of Kate Bolton-Porciatti's seminars, this was a wonderful walk through a famous landmark. Her descriptive comments about the contents of the galleries, the paintings, sculptures, and musical instruments was informative. I liked the insertion of brief videos that depicted methods of creating some of the art: how gold leaf was made, how tempera was created. Since my visit to the Accademia Gallery had been solely to see "David" and the Hall of Prisoners, I learned that there was a lot more to see!!
A wonderful mix of paintings, sculptures and music. Kate has new facts and insights on the works in the Accademia. I enjoyed seeing many things I have seen before.
Enjoyed the multifaceted aspect of this presentation.
Kate is an excellent presenter. Her visuals were amazing. the whole lecture was so informative. I learned so much!
Thank you, I will look forward to more of your talks!
This was a wonderful way to be up close and personal at the Academia Gallery tour. Such informative art history and close up details of the works, the periods in which they were produced, and explanations of the techniques used to create these masterpieces. Great for life long learners like me!
