Last night I purchased this incredible little painting. It is a copy of one of my favorite paintings of Simonetta Vespucci by Piero di Cosimo painted around 1490. I have always adored miniatures but sadly this is only the second such item in my collection. Painted around the turn of the century many of these were produced but the quality varies with the artist. This is a very special piece and I intend to make a necklace which will compliment it.
