    Check out Michelangelo's Doni Tondo - the holy family in the center, but with a bunch of beautiful naked men in the background. He really knew how to paint or carve a naked man. (spent a lot of time in the baths)

    Wasn't Michaelangelo the one who did very few paintings? It seems strange. He was so good at it.

    Although Michelangelo is arguably one of the greatest artist's of all time, his forte was sculpture and architecture. Obviously from the few surviving works he was a gifted painter as well. However, the majority of his surviving paintings are fresco: Site-specific, executed section by section within the wet plaster of a building's walls or ceilings. The three surviving egg tempura works show that even when Michelangelo was *not* working in the fresco technique, they have the look of fresco. Put another way, the forms lack subtlety of shading and coloration. This suggests to me that Michelangelo wasn't that interested in painting technique for its own sake.

    Compare, for example, this portrait by Leonardo:

    ^ Yesterday, when I was searching for that Michelangelo, I read somewhere that he looked down on painting. I really don't understand that and couldn't find further explanation.

    ^ I suppose you've heard that they recently decided that the Mona Lisa was DaVinci's boyfriend in drag. No joke.

    I hadn't heard that but it wouldn't surprise me.

    Keep in mind that Renaissance society was still largely based on the hierarchies of medieval times. The Lodges of the Master Builder's (architects, aka Masons) were at the top of that heap--and understandably so. They designed and built the fortifications, churches and mansions that housed and contributed to the authority of the ruling elite. The knowledge of their schools was passed down from master to apprentice and had been since antiquity.

    Under them were the crafts guilds which would have included stone cutting (this is where sculpture comes in), carpentry and painting… more or less in that order. Each guild (latin: collegia from which we get "college") were based on apprenticeship systems. A master would have apprentices living and working with and for him for a set number of years, for nothing more than room and board. If he graduated, he became a journeyman, able to work for wages in another master's workshop. If he created a "masterpiece," a journeyman might be elevated within the guild to the position of a master in his own right, having his own workshop.

    So *attitudes* (and to a large extent, one's social standing and financial worth) toward various professions, arts and crafts were largely based on this hierarchical system.

    Well, that is one hypothesis among many. From wiki:
    In December 2010 Silvano Vinceti reported that the Mona Lisa appears to have tiny letters and numbers in her eyes which are only apparent when viewed with a magnifying glass and shortly afterwards said that the model was Leonardo's male apprentice Gian Giacomo Caprotti (known as Salaì) and that the letters were clues to his identity. The Louvre, pointing out that he had had no access to the actual painting, said that after "every laboratory test possible" in 2004 and 2009 that "no inscriptions, letters or numbers, were discovered during the tests." and that "The ageing of the painting on wood has caused a great number of cracks to appear in the paint, which have caused a number of shapes to appear that have often been subject to over-interpretation".
    The historical evidence as to the identity of "Mona" is inconclusive. A painting such as this could have been worked on over a period of months. So it is highly unlikely the individual it represents (if any) was present at each working. That it is intended to *represent* a woman isn't in doubt. Even if it is a historical figure -- such as Lisa del Giocondo or the duchess of Milan, Isabella of Aragon, or, as some have speculated, a self portrait of da Vinci himself (in drag) -- to me it is very conceivable that Salaì may have *sat in as a model* at various points.

    For example, it is likely that da Vinci used Salaì as a model for this portrait of "St. John the Baptist" -- and you can see the resemblance with "Mona":

    The reason I looked up this thread was to share some art but I got distracted replying to your posts (I didn't know they were here). Now I have to get ready for work so am out of time. Here is just one piece, I'll add more later tonight.

    The above is an HTML "installation" of my own design, based off the work of a local "interdisciplinary" artist, Frank Pietronigro. "The work is based on negative signifiers which have been applied to gay men throughout the ages. As a basis for researching the text, Frank referenced the Oxford English Dictionary and the Dictionary of Slang to discover this litany of derisive words."

    Cy Twomblie: Untitled 1953. / Oil Based House Pait, Wax Crayon and Pencil on Canvas, 52 1/8 X 52 1/8 inches. Robert Roschenberg Foundation Collection:

    7.jpg

    Edwin Parker "Cy" Twombly, Jr. (April 25, 1928 – July 5, 2011) was an American painter of large-scale, freely scribbled, calligraphic and graffiti-like works on solid fields of mostly gray, tan, or off-white colors. His paintings are in the permanent collections of the New York's Museum of Modern Art and the Musée du Louvre in Paris. Married to the Italian artist Baroness Tatiana Franchetti – sister of his patron Baron Giorgio Franchetti, he lived in a palazzo on the Via di Monserrato in Rome. Twombly was survived by a son, Cyrus Alessandro Twombly, also a painter, and "long time companion" Nicola Del Roscio.
