Nobility of Italy

Print Round 3


I love this work simon and think it deserved a 20.  I think the judge did struggle with the title, so may I suggest you make your title a little more descriptive.  I must admit to not knowing much about italian nobility, but did a bit of research this morning.  When I put in Italian Nobility it did not immediately point me to the subject of your artwork.  However when I entered mistresses and italian nobility I was able to get the point of the story you are telling.  You know I like long titles (lol). So here is a more descriptive one for your work "Rennaissace Italy and the courtly culture of Emilia-Romagna".  You put so much work into researching your art that I think its a shame when the judge doesn't understand it - but he can't see in your head!! - That maybe a good thing ha ha!!

I like these quotes - we should ge the judges to read them before each competition!!  Or here is an idea, let us have a competition without titles next year in the themes 'No titles allowed-a picture paints a thousand words'?

Avril we are having one this year! The Boulstone Challenge. All entries have to be submitted with just a numbered reference. Re above the last quote was a judge!!! 

Thats a good for starters Simon but maybe we should continue this.  The last quote was The Judge!!
