Item Type: MRP
Creators: Robbie-Higgins, Samantha
Abstract:

This MRP has been based upon direct in-situ research and observation in Florence, Italy during the spring of 2018, of the subject artwork, Michelangelo’s David (1501-1504). Observation and research into the production, distribution and sales of kitsch objects related to the chartreuse David souvenir in all forms available in Florence as well as globally online was also undertaken. Research on the historical development of the kitsch movement through an examination of Pompeo Batoni’s works, the Grand Tour and the rise of global tourism and the souvenir industry was conducted through examination of writings and journals on the subject as noted in the bibliography and referenced within the body of the MRP.
