  1. Heheheheheh! This is one of my new favorites. Thanks again for brightening the day of an art history grad student.
    One correction and one question:
    - Veronese died in the 1580s. 1634 = incorrect.
    - Can you please tell me the location of the Ribera self-portrait from a couple of months ago? Is it in the Ufizzi?
    Thank you, and keep up the great work!
    affectionately,
    hannah

  3. Thanks, pastis03. Good catch. Upon further research, it looks like this one should be dated 1559. As for the Ribera self-portrait, it's listed as being in the Museo di San Martino in Naples.
