mitzydoodle Posted February 1, 2010 Share Posted February 1, 2010 I thought it would be fun to start a more light-hearted thread to help beat the waiting blues. Please share funny stories of things professors have said/things you have read that either made you smile or ran a chill up your spine. Hopefully this will make waiting a little more entertaining, and help pass the time! I'll start: I had a professor of Spanish art tell a story of when she was studying in Spain. The class was held in the Prado (this was decades ago) and her professor was discussing Titian's use of glazes. The professor then THREW A GLASS OF WATER ON THE PAINTING, and for a moment you could see the layers of glaze. Crazy!!! I have another friend who is working on 16th century Florence. She was reading a very logisitical (i.e. boring) letter in the archives. The letter closed with "then the dwarf killed his servant and fled. Noone has seen him since." Would anyone care to continue? :-) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
