“Bernardino di Betto, called Pintoricchio or Pinturicchio… (1454–1513) was an Italian painter of the Renaissance. He acquired his nickname, Pintoricchio (‘little painter’), because of his small stature, and he used it to sign some of his works.” From a Wikipedia page about the painter.
I referred to Lucrezia Borgia in passing in my current novel-in-progress, Waiting for Marilyn?, and ran across the photo of this fresco on a Wikipedia page about her, “Lucretia Borgia Pinturicchio” by Pinturicchio – http://www.utfinalese.it/pagine/abiti.html.

I thought it so beautiful I wanted to share it.
