Tuesday Twenty-- Twenty works of art I have to memorize for tomorrow's test

Copied from my old blog:


Hey critters!

Tomorrow I will be having my first big term test for my Renaissance Art History class. I took this class for no other reason than that I needed this credit. I thought that an art history class would be fun because it is something that I have never really learned about before. Thankfully, I do find it very interesting; however, the tests are basically about memorization of the paintings, buildings, and sculptures that we discussed in class with a little bit of using your ability to apply the terms we studied. It shouldn't be too bad, so today I wanted to share with you 20 of the 85 or something works of art that I need to memorize artist, title, and date for by tomorrow.


Here's this week's Tuesday Twenty:
