Bargello Museum

Calder ClassicsComment

This afternoon, we visited the Bargello Museum, a collection exclusively for statues. We saw beautiful art of every size, from tiny and detailed to massive and grand. Some of the most impressive works included a gorgeous chapel, covered in frescoes depicting heaven and hell, a statue of Mercury, balanced precariously on his toes, and Donatello's David. A polar opposite of Michelangelo's, this statue embodies the character of the biblical fable, looking young, weak, and being also the underdog in the world of art critics.
