Drawing - Graphite On Paper
2009, graphite on paper; 8.5 x 11.75
This view looks up into the interior of the frescoed dome of the cathedral designed and built by Buscheto at the Piazza dei Miracoli in Pisa, Italy. Construction of the cathedral was begun around 1063 (the Leaning Tower, just outside, was begun in 1173). The foreground of this drawing is dominated by the artists rendition of Giovanni Pisanos sculpted pulpit, circa 1303. The panel shown is the Presentation in the Temple. A fire in 1595, and allied bombings during WW II nearly destroyed the cathedral and interior art works.
