好友汪汪N年前我生日時寫給我的名信片
當時我倆都不知這幅畫的來歷
但這位美人看到這名信片很有感覺就買下來了

直到去年,就這麼巧
我跟她同遊義大利
竟然在某博物館中看到了這幅畫(我忘記是那個博物館...,不過可見得汪同學品味很好,呵~)
真是...........有夠驚訝的

這二天翻出了這張名信片
想了解一下這幅畫
找了google,yahoo..........連wikipedia..........都找不到
花了半小時,最後在The metropolitan museum找到...紐約大都會博物館的網站

Margaret of Austria, ca. 1490
Jean Hey (also known as the Master of Moulins) (Netherlandish, active fourth quarter 15th century)
Oil on oak panel; 12 7/8 x 9 1/8 in. (32.7 x 23 cm)
Robert Lehman Collection, 1975 (1975.1.130)

Description:
Margaret of Austria, daughter of Emperor Maximilian I, was betrothed at the age of three to the infant Charles VIII of France. She is shown here at age ten, one year before she was repudiated by her intended husband. The elaborate pendant of a pelican piercing its breast to feed its young (its blood represented by the large hanging ruby), a symbol of Christian charity, alludes to the sitter's piety. The portrait was the left wing of a diptych; the right wing (now lost) would have shown the Virgin and Child.
很有趣,沒想到有這樣的背景故事~但真看不出來這是十歲的畫像,必竟500多年前吶...
