At the exalting National Gallery, Washington D.C, a show (February 1-May 3 2015) of the Renaissance artist
Piero di Cosimo - it does not include my favourite of his secular paintings Simonetta Vespucci, to be found at the Museé Conde at Chantilly, outside Paris.
(Chantilly has the grandest of stables, early 18th Century and still in use)
Piero is not without
humour, is the snake around Simonetta’s throat real?
