I am not just a pretty face. I go to museums too. And on Monday I really enjoyed Sebastiano Del Piombo. Although in the beginning I wasn't completely convinced. The curators were trying - a bit clumsily - to explain that Piombo was a precursor. Titian ? A copycat. Michelangelo ? A mere collaborator of the newfound genius. Look at the hands they kept saying. Look at this movement, this energy. But I wasn't buying it.
That's until I saw this picture:
Sebastiano Del Piombo, a true precursor indeed.
