We welcome back James Womack, former Chair of the Art Department at Montgomery Bell Academy. Womack will teach on Giotto’s masterpiece, the Arena (Scrovegni) Chapel. The chapel contains a fresco cycle by Giotto, completed about 1305 and considered to be an important masterpiece of Western art. Giotto frescoed the chapel’s whole surface, including the walls and the ceiling. Cycles of scenes showing the Life of Christ and the Life of the Virgin were the grandest form of religious art in the period, and Giotto’s cycle is unusually large and comprehensive and recounts the story of salvation.
