Simonetta Vespucci was a renown renaissance beauty who lived in Florence and was often painted by Botticelli.
This tin was inspired by his "Portrait of a Woman" done around 1480 or so. You can see the original painting here; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Sandro_Botticelli_-_weiBliches_Brustbild.png







Kind of a continuation of my Renaissance inspired tin thing I've got going on........

Botticelli! Gotta love his work! And I do think it is a stunning idea to minimize his art like that! Grin
