Gallerie Degli Uffizi
Next, you will visit some International Gothic masterpieces, most notably, “Adoration of the Magi,” by Gentile da Fabriano. This was another turning point, when art began to tell a story, instead of simply depicting characters. Your guide will explain this exciting time in history in a vivid, storytelling manner. You will continue through the centuries into the 1400s, when artists began experimenting with three-dimensional space. The best example of this progression in art can be found in “Battle of San Romano,” by Paolo Uccello. Your tour will continue to two of the most famous works of art in the Uffizi, “Madonna with Child and Two Angels,” by Filippo Lippi; then, “Dukes of Urbino,” by Piero della Francesca. These artists began to idealize the features of men and women in paintings, which greatly influenced later artists including the magnificent da Vinci, as well as Raphael.

Sadly, the guide had a VERY heavy accent and she was difficult to understand. In addition, she focused a considerable amount on the history of Florence, Italy, etc...versus the actual art. Extremely disappointing.
