Step 1 – Brunelleschi, Old Sacristy, 1418-21, San Lorenzo & the Nave of San Lorenzo, c. 1421-69 & Benozzo Gozzoli, Procession of the Magi, c. 1459, fresco, Palazzo Medici-Riccardi Chapel[shortposting]
Step 2 – The Medici family ruled Florence. The restored & commissioned art & architecture. The 3 images below are from 2 separate Medici commissions. What makes this unique is that the church is down the street from their palace.
- How did the Medici Family show their wealth & power through their commissions?
- What was their message to the Florentines or their wealthy friends that visited their chapel?
- If you need some help, review the Instructor PDF that refers to San Marco.
Step 3 – In order to get full credit, answer the question & then respond to a minimum of 3 other student postings with comments (see Guidelines for Art Talk and Ground Rules in your Syllabus). Be sure to complete this Section before it closes. I cannot reopen a Section once it has closed.
Step 4 – Remember, the Discussions are separated into 3 Sections and close Weekly – on Sunday at 11:59 PM. The closing day will always be the same during the semester. This means that if Sunday is a holiday, please plan accordingly to complete the Discussion. The Discussions are open for 1 week and no extra time is allowed.
Step 5 – Once a Discussion has closed, I will read & graded them – this may take a few days. Once graded, I will send an Announcement with the answers and a summation of what I read from your postings and comments. You will be able to see your grades in the Grades link after I have read/graded the Discussion.
