Tabernacle, Cavalcanti Annunciation by Donatello, 1433-1435 ca., Basilica di Santa Croce
Spending the day with my dear friend Pauline Priore....she knew Jami Cakes was studying Art History in school and wanted to take her around to show her the real life versions of what they were seeing on slides and in books. Coming from Pauline, she can make anything and everything interesting and aside from being able to simply spend time with her, it was an outstanding and interesting day. She can make anyone love history of any kind. Firenze, Italia (March 26, 2005)
