Every Friday I’ll be sharing a photo from someplace in my travels.
This week’s photo is of Michelangelo’s David in Florence.
I enjoy going to art museums, but I’ll admit that just like at any other museum, I get bored rather quickly. After taking numerous art history courses as part of my degree in university, I appreciate seeing the pieces I learned about in my textbooks in person. However, I still find that I only look at a piece for a minute or two before moving on. The one exception to this was Michelangelo’s David.
Maybe it’s just because the photographs in textbooks just don’t do it justice, but I don’t think any other piece of art has moved me quite like this masterpiece.
