In the 14th century, creativity was the watchword of the city of Florence. The Renaissance was starting, and individuals like painter Giotto di Bondone were revolutionizing this corner of the fine arts. This historical moment in Italy is the inspiration for this singularly wonderful exhibit from the Getty Museum. The collection brings together works by Giotto, along with contemporaries like Bernardo Daddi, Taddeo Gaddi, Pacino de Bonaguida, and others. Visitors can make their way through this digital version of the exhibit via sections that include Devotional Art, Technical Studies, and Giotto & Pacino. One area that should not be missed here is The Laudario. Here visitors can examine 24 leaves from this exceptional manuscript that was disassembled in the early 19th century. What's even more excellent is that there's a bit of narration and context provided by curator Christine Sciacca.
