... with Florence’s colour coordination. The whole city is a lovely terracotta colour with iconic green trees lining the edges. On the way down I heard an American lady *****ing about how unsafe and inconvenient the stairs were. Well, you shouldn’t have worn high heels today honey!

Not to say that today's artists are not talented, but there is a distinct difference in the art today. I don't exactly know how paints work, but I assume the paints used in the 13th/14th century were oil and that doesn't exactly allow for much correction. Botticelli was my favorite I think.
