I always loved what they did with clothing such what is draped over his arm.

David Packwood

Cheers. I think the drapery, pose was one of the main attractions for artists. They concentrated on that unlike modern classics connoisseurship which tends to focus on the face, hair etc.


It's definitely interesting to go back to a read from a while back, when your own knowledge has increased, so you can look at it more objectively. I like this idea of revisiting old texts... might be time I take a dig through my shelves. ;)

Thank you, David for this revealing post with comments I fully support. But above all, I enjoyed your references to the blogs 'Art of the Vatican Collections' and 'Figure Drawing'.

David Packwood

Thanks to all- I'll be posting again on the Vatican blog son.
