We are all renaissance people.  In America, the question is, "Which one?"  First, you have what is known as The Renaissance.  Which is more accurately called, "The Italian or European" Renaissance.  And then there is The Harlem Renaissance which is a product of America.

The picture is Hans Holbein’s The Ambassadors and is an icon of The Italian Renaissance.

It’s fascinating and I’d like to spend some time unpacking it.

(any art majors out there who’d like to weigh in?  Go for it!)
