Here’s a little insight into my life. I have an exam on this next Tuesday. Well, this, and other works by Big Mike, and his dates (1475-1564, and all in between), and other important but relatively unexciting minutae. But mostly, this. I need know all the panels, the lunettes, and the pendentives; the prophets, the sibyls, the ancestors of Christ, and even the ignudi, or at least which panels they’re near. Whee!
I’m not an art history major, but the way they run the department I might as well be (or should have declared it as a minor…maybe).
