Uffizi Gallery
  • The Uffizi Gallery is one of the oldest and most
    famous art museums of the Western world.
  • It's housed in the Palazzo degli Uffizi, a
    palazzo (palace) in Florence, Italy.

Uffizi Gallery
  • Building of the palace was begun by Giorgio
    Vasari in 1560 for Cosimo I de' Medici as the
    offices for the Florentine magistrates hence
    the name "uffizi" ("offices").
  • Construction was continued and ended in 1581.

Palazzo Vecchio connects to the Uffizi
  • The offices quickly turned into the private art
    gallery for the Medici family.
  • It housed famous work by Michelangelo,
    Botticelli, Raphael, Titian, da Vinci, etc.
  • A private walkway was connected from the Palazzo
    Vecchio (Medicis Palace) to the Uffizi.

    crawl through the Uffizi.

Reluctant Painter Sistine Chapel Named after
Pope Sixtus IV
The Vault, or Ceiling of the Sistine Chapel
shows scenes from the book of Genesis (creation
of the heaven and stars, Adam and Eve, Garden of
Eden) 1508-1512 AD.
  • Pope Julius II asked Michelangelo to paint the
    vault, or ceiling, of the Sistine Chapel.
  • Michelangelo initially refused, however, agreed
    after being given artistic freedom.
  • 1508 1512 AD.
  • Used scafalds.

The Last Judgement, 1535-1541 AD
  • Pope Paul III asked Michelangelo to paint the
    altar wall.
  • The Last Judgement depicts the second coming of
  • This painting was a bitter dispute between
    Michelangelo and Cardinal Carafa over the nudity
    of the characters.
  • The Popes own Master of Ceremonies, Biagioda
    Cesena, stated, "it was mostly disgraceful that
    in so holy a place there should have been
    depicted all those nude figures, exposing
    themselves so shamefully, and that it was no
    place for a popes chapel but rather for the
    public bathrooms and bars!

People say Michelangelo had such a difficult time
painting the Last Judgment that he painted
himself as St. John the Baptist.
You know what they say about paybacks?
  • The bottom right corner of the painting shows
    Minos, the Greek judge of the Underworld, leading
    sinners to Hell.
  • Michelangelo painted Biagioda Cesena as the first
    sinner going into Hell!!!
  • He is depicted with donkey ears while his nudity
    is covered by a coiled snake.
  • It is said that when Cesena complained to the
    Pope, Pope Paul III responded that his job title
    did not extend to hell, so the portrait would
    have to remain.

  • Now, you are going to begin your Uffizi Gallery
  • You and your partner need to report to the first
    center on your paper.
  • Read everything carefully.
  • Report to me before you move onto the next

    Crawl. Use it as a bases for an analysis of the
    work. Assume the role as a reviewer for an art
    magazine. Write a review on how the ideas of the
    Renaissance are represented in one or more of the
  • In an article for a Arts Entertainment
    Magazine you need an introduction, body, and a
    conclusion.- at least 5 paragraphs

  • Paragraph 1 Introduction The main idea you
    wish to convey, include the thesis statement
    How did the items you choose show the rebirth of
    Greek and Roman ideas?
  • The Renaissance was the rebirth of Greek and
    Roman achievements. Beginning in the 14th
    century on the Italian Peninsula people began to
    focus on humanistic ideas. Much of the culture
    of the ancient Greeks and Romans was found in
    numerous works. By looking at the architecture
    of the Renaissance, one can see the use of
    ancient architectural elements such as arches,
    columns, domes, details, and sculptures.
