Happy Valentine's Day — A Return to Art and Love

In honor of Valentine's Day, and since it will be closing on Monday, I decided to revisit Art and Love in Renaissance Italy, an extensive exhibition of masterpieces inspired by love, which I previewed exactly three months ago when I was just starting this blog: read that post here.

Art and Love takes the visitor through all aspects of Renaissance love: from wedding gifts to everyday objects, textiles to portraits and chests, allegorical and erotic paintings, and everything pertaining to the subject.

The Met's YouTube channel also has a ton of content on this:
