Friday Museum Sketches

Okay everybody. Todays sketch is from Ghiberti's Gate's of Paradise from the Florence Baptistery. Specifically it is a detail from the David and Goliath panel (bottom left corner) Which was one of the three panels on tour at the Seattle Art Museum. I had seen them once before in Florence but back then I was still in my "Michelangelo is God" "and all other Florentine Sculptors were just progressional steps towards the master's art. Now some time later I am happy to say I am fully able to appreciate these pieces on their own merits and appreciate Ghiberti's genius.
