Today was SUPER exciting for me because I got to go to the AGO with my friend before bootcamp. We saw some of the regular exhibits, but we went in particular to see the Renaissance Exhibit. For me, it was mainly to see the illuminated manuscripts. and there were a bunch. = SO PLEASED.
I study printing as my major, and I took an English class this past year on myth and literature … and so the fact that one of their manuscripts was an original copy of Dante’s Divine Comedy pretty much made my day. Ugh. the paintings were so beautiful (manuscripts and all the other ones too). Gold leafing like crazy, SUPER intense detail … floored me. If you live in the GTA, go see the exhibit 🙂
