I admit I have failed profoundly in my ambitions to maintain an art history blog, primarily due to having forgotten to bring a camera cord! Until I get one, I am going to resort to stealing photos from my students and, as you can already see, posting extremely poor quality pictures from my phone. In any case, as Plutarch wrote, “It’s the thought that counts.”
Sunday morning on Via del Monte della Farina in Rome, waiting for students to arrive. At the risk of making Portlanders jealous, it would impossible to ask for better weather: it’s warm and breezy and the relative quiet of the city is punctuated only by the chattering of tourists and old women, the roar of a motorino, or the bells of Sant’Andrea della Valle.
