Day 8. Today was one of the greatest days of my life. Long story short, there is a hidden room under the Medici Chapel where Michelangelo was hiding for three weeks away from the Medici family and the pope. This room was discovered in the floor under an enormous cabinet 37 years ago and was closed off to the public a year later for fear of damage. My professor was on the team that first discovered and restored this corridor.

Helen Frankenthaler 

Adapting Jackson Pollock’s technique of painting canvases laid flat on the floor, Frankenthaler developed her own technique of pouring diluted paint directly onto canvas, then manipulating it with mops and sponges to create vivid fields of color.
