115/365 Ginevra

Daughter of a wealthy Florentine banker, Ginevra de’ Benci captivated my friend Saul. I’d not heard about her until he mentioned her in an ICQ conversation years ago and encouraged me to visit her in Washington, DC. I finally did and understood why he was so entranced by her. She’s the other woman I visit whenever I can.

  1. Sorry, mention Saul in Washington DC and I instantly think of Homeland. Then I became distracted at ICQ, having forgotten it existed till you mentioned it, and now I remember connecting with friends on it for the first time in more than a decade.
    I would like to visit her too. The highlight of my work trips to DC was making time for exhibitions and gallery visits.


  2. Dona, thank you for reminding me about Adventures in Art, a wonderful book published by the National Gallery. I used it with my kids, especially when we were homeschooling. I look forward to introducing my grandsons to it. Ginevra is inside!
