See Mary Ashley with the Bruges Madonna, by Michelangelo. 

Join Sean and Andreas in Paris. Go to Travel page and then to Paris. Be prepared to wait some minutes for the Presentation to download. But I'm sure they'd say it's worth the wait.

Here's the monastery plan that I promised you. The first is of Maulbronn, where we will be going next month. The second is of St. Gall, the oldest plan we have, and which is found in our text. I recommend you look at both.

 For those who wish to purchase the text, Art History Second Edition by Marilyn Stokstad, I recommend the two volume, hardback, slip covered edition. The price is about $95.00; however the two paperback, school text volumes are $72.50 apiece. Remember, there is NO requirement to purchase the text.
There is also a huge one volume hardback edition for about $65.00. It's a backbreaker to carry but less expensive.

There are also used versions available, some at good prices. 

These texts may be found at any of the major on-line book stores. Here is a link to the boxed set at

 I highly recommend having a copy of a book called  The Annotated Mona Lisa. Students say this is the most useful review tool available for the AP Art History test.. She also has a book entitled The Annotated Arch about architecture. I think it's good, but I haven't really used it that much. 

Here is a link to the title at You can choose either new or used, all at a good price..
