Uffizi Gallery Collection

Piazzale degli Uffizi

The Uffizi Gallery can be a very difficult museum to confront on your own. It is vast and has an extensive collection.

For those with keen interest, we can explore the evolution of themes, iconography and techniques while engaging in a dialogue on the art, the Masters, the patrons, and the collection. Your background, what you want to know and are interested in will be what inspires your private tour with me.

The Galleria degli Uffizi holds an impressive collection of Italian paintings that range from the late 12th century to the early 18th century, masterpieces that allow us to follow through time the evolution of themes, techniques, colours, and composition. In walking through the museum, we will be able to admire the grace of the lines in Filippo Lippi, the many layers of Botticelli, the colors, craftsmanship and bodies of Michelangelo, the depth of Raphael and Leonardo da Vinci’s vibrant and dazzling compositions. We see how artists influenced one other, allowing us a peek into the world of the workshop and that of the artist and their patrons. We also comprehend the social, religious and political function of art through the centuries.
