The fun thing about games being art is that it doesn’t matter if people think they’re art or not. They still are.

This painting is huge and incredibly detailed, so I plan on breaking it up over a few posts. It’s one of the most discussed paintings in Medieval European art, so I’ll just leave you with the Wikipedia page.

That being the case, the inclusion of various skin tones from very white to very black in this most famous of paintings one might imagine would put the lie to the idea of an all-White Medieval Europe. But as with the majority of the works of art I have posted, almost all of them are touted as an anomaly.

The bigger this blog gets, the more ridiculous the claim is that each and every work of art featuring a person of color is “the only one” or “the first one of its kind”. And yet, unless you’re going to see some of the very specific exhibitions that have happened in the last ten years, such as Revealing the African Presence in Renaissance Europe, most museum descriptions will insist that a figure’s race, especially a work featuring a Black person, needs some kind of explanation.
