ART: Piero di Cosimo

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 Muse√© 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?
