This reminds me of Mino de Fiesole, who attempted to do the wet drapery seen there in the middle renaissance. Obviously flawed, but this piece really resonates with me.

The Francois Vase is great, probably the greatest Black figure vase that comes down to us. It's almost Bruegelian, in that you can get lost in all the various veristic details
>>
This is a rare piece, it's a Bozzetto made by Michelangelo for a Sculpture, a River God for the Medici Tomb, I believe. Rare, because few of these exist from Michelangelo, as he tried to downplay his reliance on preparatory material in service of the image of divine sculptor he wished to cultivate

I've always been interested in the common lives of ancient/ medieval people, especially what they would have gotten out of art. That's where these little Roman Bronzes come in. I guess I like trinkets. Here's a little, chibi Gladiator.

My favourite Lautrec is his picture of Vincent. Mine's too high res, but the color's amazing.

On Naxos, there's an archaic quarry where they would hew out colossal Kouroi, and sometimes they'd break and the people would just leave them there, carved only very roughly. Apparently, the fine details would be carved on site.

This is similar to the Easter Island Heads, and like those, you can see these abandoned Colossi today.

One version, quite popular I guess, of the Death of Priam involves Pyrrhus beating him to death with his grandson. Virgil chose to go with a different one, where Priam is killed at the foot of Jupiter, by stabbing.
Don't know why.

And here we have the aftermath. These are both attic designs, but I still find it interesting how they portray the scene so similarly, despite the probable time between the two vases, judging by their use of black and red figures respectively.

Are they based off some kind of common iconography or template?

I'm a fan of Piero della Francesca, don't get me wrong, but I think his work lacks a certain emotiveness. His figures just sort of stare off into space.
I think he may have suffered from Uccello syndrome.

While the sculptural rigidity isn't uncommon to earlier renaissance artists, his figures kind of have that stare which reminds me of Richard Dadd's later work, after he went crazy.

In what little of Daniele da Volterra's work I've seen, I see a very interesting artist, who takes Michelangelo's latter manner and puts some interesting twists on it.
It's a shame he falls into the category of artists who were unfortunate enough to be associated with Michelangelo. In da Volterra's case, he is most remembered for being the man hired to censor Michelangelo's last judgment. Forever the Breeches Maker.

Leyendecker always reminds me of Gerard van Honthorst in the way he lays down paint.

If you've ever wanted to see a greatly detailed painting of pseudo Persian/Phrygian/whatever Mithras wears, look up the Capuan Mithraeum. It contains this scene, the central scene of Mithraism, but much more richly detailed.
Has anyone ever considered that Christianity overtook Mithraism because it's easier to draw a cross than this? Just a thought

Here's a cute little sculpture that came from an apothecary shop. Apparently, it worked as a sign for illiterate people.

Here's another one; same purpose, I believe. That little golden ball represents a pill, and you put it in his mouth. I don't know why; maybe it gave kids something to do?

Here's a unique specimen. Lo Spinario is a Greco roman bronze that was never lost, meaning it was continuously displayed in one form or another since antiquity.

You can see his red lip, and his copper toenails. Interesting how the Greeks/Romans used different colors, be they from different metals or patinas, in their bronzes. Now, an Etruscan example.

That's not really a different metal, though, it's just an inlaid eye. Well, here's the Quirinal Boxer, a personal favorite of mine, notice his copper blood used to highlight his wounds.
>>
>>3965542
L'antico was famed for his use of patina to create very interesting little bronzes. His nickname reflects is interest in reviving antique models. I don't know if that referred to his use of Patina/other colored metals or his subject matter or matter of expression.

Never be ashamed of loving art, anon. I personally need to bone up on my Spanish Painting.
My favorite Vasquez is his Crucifixion, especially the trickle of blood that runs down Christ's leg. He was a master of movement as well. In this piece, I like how well he renders the water running down the jug

Nah, that had more to do with state sanctioned mass violence against non-christians. Besides, the cross wasn't a common symbol early on, the chi-ro was.

What makes you think that they wanted to kill the jews? They utterly destroyed an organized jewish state as a threat to their empire and dispersed and/or enslaved it's entire population. Rome wasn't big on slaughter solely for the sake of slaughter and the jews were thoroughly beaten down.

You can tell by her clothing that she is in mourning, probably returning from a funeral of a close family member. The fact that some 19th century neckbeard is bothering her isn't helping.
